Since then, she worked in partnership with the autism community to develop an internationally respected set of recommendations to prevent suicide in autistic people, which have been incorporated into government policy and clinical practice. The excellence and impact of her research and partnership working have been recognised with a number of prestigious awards from the International Society for Autism Research, Autistica, the National Autistic Society and University of Nottingham. .
