The purpose of the study is to further investigate teachers’ perspective on the student-teacher relationship quality with female students with autism spectrum disorder and the potential factors that are associated with the relationship quality (i.e., teacher and student characteristics). This will be done through a one-time 15-20 minute online survey that participants (i.e., teachers) will complete.
