It’s great to see that teenagers and young people are of interest to Aussie autism researchers.
Only through knowing the real facts and figures can policy change be promoted and the needs of people in transition be championed.
If you are or have a young person on the spectrum who’d be willing to anonymously participate, please do get in touch with researchers from the Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre. See what they’ve written here:
Researchers from the Autism CRC and Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre are conducting a longitudinal study with the main aim of understanding the process of transitioning from school to adult life for Australian students diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their families.
For this purpose we are inviting young people with an autism spectrum condition (aged 15-25) and their parents or guardians, to participate in a longitudinal survey.
