This article explores the use of computer-assisted interviewing (CAI) as a tool for consulting with children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). This is considered within the context of a research study which utilized one CAI programme, In My Shoes, to investigate children and young people's views of provision, support, and participation in meetings and involvement in decision making. Based on a process of reflection through dialogue, the authors report on the perceived value of this methodology compared with traditional semi-structured interviewing. The researchers conclude that this approach offers potential in interviewing children with ASD. Implications for practitioners and avenues for future research are considered.
