What is this study about?
We are interested in finding out about what people on the autism spectrum want out of life, their hopes, and worries. We measure this by asking questions about people’s lives. We are trying to find out how to accurately measure the quality of life for autistic adults.
A video answering questions you may have about the study:
Who has been asked to take part?
Members of the Adult Autism Spectrum Cohort who have completed research measures previously, and who have told us they would like to take part in more research.
What will I be asked to do if I take part?
We would like you to complete a survey. We will show you some questions that we think will be good for finding out about quality of life. We will ask you if you think they are clear and important questions for measuring quality of life.
We would also like to send you some questionnaires to complete. One will be a quality of life measure (it is like the one which you filled in when you joined the Adult Autism Spectrum Cohort) and some will be about your happiness and social life.
Can I talk to someone before agreeing to take part?
Yes, you can contact the Research Assistant for the study (David Mason):
