We are trying to learn more about the opportunities and challenges for Australian young autistic people to get jobs and to keep them. We are really interested in learning more about their experiences; what their aspirations are for work, what they find helpful (or not so helpful), what support they need and what hopes and concerns they have about the future.
Who can participate in the research? If you are between 18-30 years of age; have a diagnosis of an Autism; have completed mainstream schooling; live in Australia and have access to the internet, then you can participate. We would also like to hear from parents/grandparents and other carers of young people with autism.
If you agree to participate, you will be asked to answer questions relating to the research topic through an on-line survey. It will take about 20 minutes to complete the survey. The questions will include ones that ask you questions about work, aspirations and goals as well as challenges and how to overcome them.
To participate click on the link below, read the information statement and then decide if you would like to complete the survey. Make sure you understand the content in the information statement before you consent to participate. If there is anything you do not understand, or you have questions, ask family, friends or other supports that you have or contact us directly.
