An exploration of the lived experiences of women with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder

Louise Condon is an educational psychologist who works with the Department of Education and Skills, National Educational Psychological Service (NEPS). She has spent the majority of her career to date working as a psychologist with the HSE in various services, autism specific and child and adult disability services.

Louise, as part of an educational psychology doctoral training course, is carrying out a research project on the exploration of the lived experiences of women with a diagnosis of an Autism Spectrum Disorder.

There has been little opportunity for women with a diagnosis of Autism, Aspergers Syndrome or an Autism Spectrum Disorder to share their stories and experiences. This study aims to extend existing research that discusses the lived experiences of these women by offering them an opportunity to tell their life stories in their own words. This study also hopes to inform services that support women who have a diagnosis of Autism, Aspergers Syndrome or an Autism Spectrum Disorder.

If you would like to take part in this study, you can contact Louise by phoning her on 087-1381124. Louise will then give you further information about the study, and answer any questions you may have. After this discussion, if you wish to be part of the study Louise will arrange an interview at a day, time and location to suit you. The interview can be carried out by phone, on-line video, or in person.
