A trip to Cambridge

As planned yesterday I travelled to Cambridge to take part in some research into Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC).

This took me to a part of Cambridge I have not visited before, the Trumpington Road, where the Autistic Research centre is based. Unfortunately my astigmatism meant that I was not able to do most of the visual tests, but I did complete various other tasks, and following an email from one of the researchers I have just signed up as a volunteer so I can complete some online questionnaires.

Given my strong opinions about the levels of ignorance and prejudice that continue to exist re Autistic Spectrum Conditions I always accept any opportunity to contribute to increasing the level of knowledge about these conditions.

No pictures with this post as I have to leave for work.

I am branch secretary of NAS West Norfolk and #actuallyautistic (diagnosed 10 years ago at the comparatively advanced age of 31). I am a keen photographer, so that most of my own posts contain photos. I am a keen cricket fan and often write about that subject. I also focus a lot on politics and on nature.
