Developing a tool to measure meltdowns and shutdowns in autistic adults

Research Study

We are interested in creating a tool that can be used by clinicians to learn more about meltdowns and shutdowns when working with adults on the autism spectrum. We are looking for adults (age 18 years or older) who believe they are on the spectrum (may be formally or self-diagnosed) to share your experiences with meltdowns and shutdowns with us.

Participation is entirely online and includes answering questions about your experiences with meltdowns/shutdowns. You may take however long or short to complete the survey depending on the amount you choose to share with us, however it will likely take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
