Scottish Autism Research Group (SARG)
Type of service: Professionals support networks, Research Organisations
The Scottish Autism Research Group, which was founded in 1999, is an interdisciplinary group of academic researchers, postgraduate students and practitioners involved in research into autism spectrum conditions. The group was formed to provide a platform for sharing research-in-progress, to encourage debate and to offer academic support to post-graduate students in a part of the country where opportunities for sharing their interest with a wider community were limited. Meetings are in the form of all day seminars that are hosted by the SARG organising committee, rotating among the Universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow Caledonian and St. Andrews. Most of the academic members are based in departments of Psychology, Education, or Clinical Sciences. Practitioner members are predominantly clinical and educational psychologists and psychiatrists, but also include some specialist teachers and therapists in autism. Membership and seminar attendance is currently free but members must register formally for the seminars.
