Research Study

This study is for both transition age youth with ASD (including Asperger’s) and their parents and has been approved by Illinois Institute of Technology’s IRB (Approval # IRB-2021-14)

Researchers from the Department of Psychology at Illinois Institute of Technology are conducting an online research study to learn more about the role of self-determination and perceived parental autonomy support on youth’s participation in transition planning, focusing on the perceptions of transition-age youth with ASD (including Asperger’s) and their parents. The first part of the survey is for transition-age youth with ASD. Upon completion, parents/guardians will be sent a separate link to the parent survey.
