Sorry that this may be a bit late for people, I wanted to check that it was ok to post, then didn't keep track of PMs.

Autistica are doing a free virtual research conference this week. Link here https://www.autistica.org.uk/get-involved/research-conference/festival-programme-2020

These also seem to be recorded (hosts only). So they should be accessible even after the event.

I saw that it exists - but I was worried it might make me annoyed. The Twitter feed kind of confirms some of what I was worried about. I didn't like 'undatables'.

I think there's another series called 'Atypical' too. I don't watch them because I'm sick of these sensationalist programs that give people the wrong ideas and/or people pretending to actually give a sh**. I'm so fed up with it all.

Atypical was an American fictional series. I liked it in general some things were a bit over done but the main character had a job and went to uni and it countered a lot of the pitty bullsh*t. 'The A word' is pretty good at factual portrayal of SEND schools. Problem is, the spectrum is so broad no program will get everything right or represent everyone.
