The aims of this research were to explore the experience of inertia and to begin to describe these experiences and their impact. So little is known about this collection of difficulties that a broad approach was required and a realist framework was adopted for this initial description. Following the success of previous discussion groups at Autscape, which gave participants an opportunity to share their experiences and hear those of others, data was collected through focus groups, both face-to-face and online. Previous research on related topics has used only observation, second-hand reports from carers and writings of autistic people, so first-hand reports allowed for unique insights into the internal experience of autistic inertia. This study was approved by the University of Manchester Research Ethics Committee (ref. 2019-6324-11577).
