I am a disability studies scholar/researcher starting a new project aimed at gathering information from the autism community on how to improve post-secondary experiences. The survey asks for information about post-secondary (i.e., in employment and institutes of higher education) experiences from the autism community as well as suggestions on improving these experiences for the community. Below is more information including the survey link. Please let me know if you have any questions.


Thank you!


Gathering Perspectives from the Autism Community about Employment and Higher Education


Dr. Jennifer Sarrett from Emory University (IRB #00087911) is conducting a study aimed at developing strategies for creating autism-friendly, neurodiverse workplaces and institutes of higher education. If you identify as being autistic, live in the United States, and are at least 18 years of age you are eligible to participate. Participation includes a short online survey about experiences in the workforce and/or with higher education (i.e., colleges/universities, vocational and technical schools, community college). These surveys will also ask your opinion on how to make these environments and opportunities more accessible and friendly to the autism community. The time this survey takes varies depending on how many open-ended questions you fill out and the details you provide. However, you may save and return to the survey at anytime. You will also be given the option to participate in a later, online focus group to gather more detailed information. If you would like to participate, please follow this link: https://newqtrial201...7VXzWCELUJ0PW0R. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact Dr. Sarrett at jsarret@emory.edu. Thank you.
