Exploring autism-related language preferences across the globe

Our study aims to further our understanding of the autism-related language preferences of autistic people across the globe. This is because it’s really important for the world to know how is best to talk about autism. This project was developed in collaboration with a group of autistic individuals. 

Dr Sophie Sowden (S.L.Sowden@bham.ac.uk), Connor Keating (CXK655@bham.ac.uk), and Lydia Hickman (LXH856@bham.ac.uk). 

Who can participate: 
All autistic adults (aged 18 +) are eligible to participate. Please note that people without a formal diagnosis of autism but who self-identify as autistic can participate too. 

What’s involved: 
Participants will be asked to answer some questions online about their autism-related language preferences. The study should take around 10-15 minutes to complete. Sign-up at: https://tinyurl.com/y2xnsm4l 

After participating, they will be entered into a prize draw to win one of multiple $85 vouchers (Canadian Dollars).
