Research Study: How do autistic people manage their emotions?
Many autistic people seek help for managing emotions. While there has been some research on what works, we don’t know what autistic people think about the help they receive for their emotions. If you are an autistic person (or you are a carer of an autistic person) who has received help for managing emotion (e.g., meltdowns, feeling overwhelmed), we’d love to hear your thoughts on this important area.
Who can participate?
- have a diagnosis of autism or identify as autistic
- care for an autistic person
- are aged 12+ years
- have received professional help in emotion regulation
- have English language competency
- have access to the internet
People from any country are welcome.
What is involved?
You will complete a survey with tick-box questions as well as free text questions. It will take 20-30 minutes to complete, and you can choose to have someone help you complete the survey.
*Eligible participants can elect to be part of a random draw for 1 of 10 x $50AUD Prezzee vouchers.
