Neurodiversity-Affirming Practice Through the Lens of Lived Autistic 

Please Note: We are still recruiting male participants, as we are nearing the end of the study and lack male perspectives.
Researchers at the University of British Columbia are interested in learning more about what neurodiversity-affirming care means to autistic adults.

Principle Investigator: Laurie Ford, Ph.D. (
Primary Contact: Juliane Dmyterko, M.A., Ph.D. Candidate (

Who can participate: 
o Individuals 19 years old or older who identify as autistic (including self-diagnosed) and neurodivergent.
o Who also have access to technology (i.e., computer, tablet, phone) and a reliable internet connection to participate in the study, who live in British Columbia, Canada, and who speak fluent English.
o We are actively recruiting male participants as we have limited male participants.

What’s involved: 
Completion of a short online survey and take part in an individual interview online (or you may elect to complete the interview in a written format) with approximately 1.5-hour time commitment.

For your time, you will receive a $35 gift card. Everyone who expresses an interest in the study and completes the screening questions will be entered into a draw for a $100 gift card!
