From school star to star MP

This article was first published in November 2017, ahead of Stars in Our Schools 2017. Rosie is currently campaigning for re-election in the current general election Rosie Duffield is still in shock.

After all, it’s much like being a single parent, a teaching assistant and a UNISON member, a combination that Rosie knows all about from first-hand experience. We’re talking in Portcullis House, where MPs’ offices look over the Thames. Below, thousands of tourists are enjoying ice creams in the late autumn sun, watching the Millennium Eye turning slowly and taking selfies with Big Ben wrapped in scaffolding behind them. Rosie isn’t planning to forget what her life was like before getting elected to Parliament – when she had to rely on tax credits and was still struggling to make ends meet, but was working extra, unpaid hours as a teaching assistant because she cared about doing a good job. And that is why she is joining UNISON in celebrating Stars in Our Schools – one day in the year when...

Social interaction in individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is characterized by qualitative impairments that highly impact quality of life. Bayesian theories in ASD frame an understanding of underlying mechanisms suggesting atypicalities in the evaluation of probabilistic links within the perceptual environment of the affected individual. To address these theories, the present study explores the applicability of an innovative Bayesian framework on social visual perception in ASD and demonstrates the use of gaze transitions between different parts of social scenes. We applied advanced analyses with Bayesian Hidden...
