Project Title: The CENSSAS study: Exploring Associations Between CENtral Sensitivity Syndromes and the Autism Spectrum 

Sarah is an ESRC funded PhD student investigating possible associations between ‘Central Sensitivity Syndromes’ (CSS) such as Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC).  This participatory research project will explore whether autistic people might be more vulnerable to developing a CSS, and will look at the lived experience of autistic people with a co-morbid chronic illness. The CENSSAS study also incorporates a public engagement project funded by King's College London and Wellcome’s Institutional Strategic Support Fund.
