      Why do you not use high performing Asperger Syndrome persons to be on the research programme, not as case studies but to work along side of you, as only they both sides of the coin?

    These are very valid points about the need for a significant proportion of research to be helping real people make the best decisions in the real world. That this doesn’t happen enough is a criticism that could be levelled at a much broader swathe of education research; well done for both identifying the issue and taking appropriate action in the right direction. At a time when a number of Russell Group universities are considering ditching Initial Teacher Education to focus on what they consider to be research priorities, which will inevitably further separate the researchers from teachers operating in the real world, I would love to see more of them following the IOEs lead.
