Everyday Experiences and Communication
Project end date: Ongoing project
Researchers at Western University are interested in what people know about common events and how people communicate. They are looking for autistic and non-autistic adults and children 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: 1. Filling out personality/behaviour questionnaires. (For children under 18, this would be completed by a parent or guardian.); 2. Completing a task about ordering the steps people do during common events (like going to the movies); 3. 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. Participants will be given $30 CAD for participating in the study. If you (or your child) want to participate or have questions, please email Kara Hannah at [email protected].Posted on July 14, 2023
