I see a lot of Psychology ECRs on Twitter discuss the extortionate costs of conference registration/travel. Throughout the first year of my PhD I started compiling a list of travel bursaries suitable for postgrads. Here's a short thread of open funding opportunities: 1/9

Accounts of Pokemon Go helping health & socialising "Quite a few people with autism like Pokémon... it's a nice environment, we turn the music down & people can either play together or play separately" "It does help people go out in the community."

New paper shows dunning-kruger effect for knowledge: those least knowledgeable overestimate their knowledge & those most knowledgeable underestimate their knowledge. Don't use self-reported knowledge as proxy variable for actual autism knowledge! !

I only had PhD funding for 3 years and submitted 3 years to the day after starting my PhD. But it was very stressful. More funded time, even half a year more, would have meant not giving up my weekends and a better work-life balance.

Randomised controlled trials (RCT) are the best tool we have to determine if an intervention works. Yet, there are still very few RCTs evidencing ways to improve autistic people's lives. That's why we're asking autistic adults to share their views about taking part in RCTs 👇👇
