Dr Yo Dunn gave a talk about

Making services accessible to Autistic people

Please see below for the audio of this talk, because of a technical problem the first couple of minutes of the talk is missing.

In this talk Dr Yo Dunn will pull together her knowledge from different types of services, drawing mainly from, education, social care and health, from the point of view of both the client and the professional to try to identify some general conclusions about how to improve understanding and communication about what needs to change and how to change it.

She creates bespoke training and consults on topics related to Autism and/or law. Over the past 6 months she has been part of a team delivering training on the legal framework of the Care Act 2014 to a broad cross section of English local authorities. She has a good understanding of issues from both the service user’s and the professionals’ perspective across adult and children’s services Yo has an academic background in social policy analysis and her doctorate is in educational research.
