Whether you are an undergrad or post-doc we want to say: welcome and thank you! There is a lack of literature on autistic people with eating disorders and any research you are doing is contributing to such an important field. We know that this group do not respond as well to standard eating disorder treatment so we have to understand why that is and how we can improve service provision. Although this website is mainly aimed at those with the comorbidity, their loved ones and their clinicians, we hope you will find it useful too. We will be posting our research papers as well as psychoeducation around the comorbidity.
Having implemented the PEACE pathway across South London and Maudsley’s Eating Disorder services, we have developed a successful strategy to support those in need. These strategies have been evaluated and prove much more successful than ‘Treatment As Usual’ for this patient group.
We’ve gathered together everything you might need to further your research.
Have a read of our latest blog posts! Whether you want to read about someone’s experiences, learn more about the comorbidity or explore nutritional recommendations, we hope you will find something that meets your needs!

What is interoception, and why is it important?
BEACON is a brain imaging project looking at how the brain processes emotion and cognition in individuals with anorexia nervosa. We are also interested in how autistic characteristics affect these brain processes and how these processes change over time.
