On Friday, February 8, CONNECT project members gathered in Moncton to collaborate on a video to share their diverse experiences living with autism.
“The video will be a unique and approachable way of sharing the experiences of autistic adults,” says Caroline Jose, CONNECT Project Lead and MSSU Research Associate. “The CONNECT project uses a collaborative research model that engages autistic adults, caregivers, and professionals who work with autistic adults—this video amplifies their voices and shares their insights from almost two years of research.”
The CONNECT video is made possible by a knowledge translation grant from the Consortium National de Formation en Santé, and will be bilingual.
Radio Canada visited the team as they developed the script for the video. Listen and read the stories online:
