Experiences and impact of anxiety on activities and participation from the perspectives of autistic adults

Research Study

Anxiety and worry are commonly experienced by autistic adults. These experiences of anxiety and worry
can impact your ability to participate and engage in life in the way you want to. We want to understand
your experiences of anxiety and worry and how anxiety and worry impact your participation in day to
day life.

Can I participate?
Yes, if you are:
• Have lived in Australia for the last two years
• On the autism spectrum
• Are aged 18 years or older
• Able to discuss and talk about your experiences

What is involved?
As part of this project, you will participate in an interview (about an hour) about your experiences of
anxiety and worry and how it impacts your ability to do the things you want to do. As a token of
appreciation for your time, you will receive a Coles/Myer voucher as a reimbursement for your time for
participating.
