The Autism Community Research Network @Southampton [ACoRNS] is a public engagement project that has developed a research-practice partnership between Education and Psychology at the University of Southampton, school leaders and practitioners in the local community. Together they have established a co-constructed network for researching evidence-based practices in autism education, with the views and perspectives of children and young people at its centre. Festival of Social Science events were held in 2017 and 2019 to showcase the research being undertaken by this partnership; bringing together local families, educational practitioners and related professionals. This online event for 2020 will be an opportunity to share the important and innovative research that has been done with Digital Stories during lockdown to support the assessments of children for their EHCPs, and the transitions of older students with complex needs beyond school. These approaches were particularly important under social distancing measures and could also be helpful for the longer term.
