Dr Catherine Crompton (Edinburgh University) will be presenting on her recent paper ‘The effects of neurotype-matching on self and observer rated rapport.’.
Following a short presentation, there will be an opportunity for discussion.
In Study 1, participants were aware if they were talking to a non-autistic or autistic person. What impact might that have had on self-rated rapport? Do you think it would be different if they didn’t know whether the other person was autistic?
The rapport measure was designed specifically for this study, and asked participants to score based on perceived ease, enjoyment, success, friendliness, and awkwardness. Are there other domains that could be explored? What might we expect to find in different domains?
