Autistic people have long reported hearing difficulties in noisy environments, like restaurants, classrooms, cafes, and social gatherings. Yet corresponding laboratory research has yielded inconsistent and inconclusive results. Our team of autistic and neurotypical researchers believes that one explanation is the lack of autistic voices shaping this research, limiting the utility of both research questions and research methods. Our project aims to build a new foundation for research in this field, progressing systematically from in-depth self-report to evidence-based hypotheses and data-collection tools. This presentation shares results of the first phase of the project, along with reflections on our team’s experience of participatory research.
