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.
