Everyday Experiences and Communication

Research Study

We are interested in what people know about common events and how people communicate. We are looking for autistic and non-autistic individuals (aged 9 and up) to participate in an online study.

Who can participate?

  • Adults (18 and older) who are autistic or non-autistic
  • Children (aged 9-17) who are autistic or non-autistic, and their parents/guardians

Participants must be English speakers.

What is involved?

The study has three parts:

  • Filling out personality/behaviour questionnaires. (For children under 18, this would be completed by a parent or guardian.)
  • Completing a task about ordering the steps people do during common events (like going to the movies).
  • Having a Zoom call for language and knowledge tasks with the researcher. Participants will answer questions about words, sentences, and pictures.

A device with a reliable internet connection would be needed for the study. In total, the study may take up to 3 hours.

Will I be compensated?

In total, you would be given $30 for completing the study.

Who do I contact?

If you (or your child) want to participate or have questions, please email Kara at khannah6@uwo.ca.
