Research Request.

Hello, 

My name is Dr. Melissa Powell-Williams, and I am conducting research centered on experiences of autism with Kathryn DelGenio. This research has been approved by the IRB of Augusta University. The primary data informing my research are interviews with individuals over the age of eighteen who have been diagnosed with autism or an Autism Spectrum Disorder (including Asperger’s) by a professional. I hope to explore any connections between behaviors, diagnoses, interactions, and experiences in the lives of individuals diagnosed with autism. Interviews will be conducted online through a secure program called Qualtrics, and will consist of 45 questions. 

I am writing you today to see if you or others who fit the guidelines would be interested in participating in this research. Also, would it be possible to circulate my interview guide on this forum/page/website in order to recruit participants? 

Please let me know if you have any questions or if you would like to preview our interview guide. 

If you are interested in circulating access to this project, please let me know. I have included a brief summary and link to the interview below:

Please consider participating in research focusing on adult experiences living with ASD (including Aspergers). We hope to explore any connections between behaviors, diagnoses, interactions, and experiences in the lives of individuals diagnosed within the spectrum. Interviews will be conducted online through a program called Qualtrics, and will consist of 45 questions. If you are an adult who has been diagnosed, please take the time answer our questions by clicking on the following link. Please consider passing the link to others. Thank you--Melissa Powell-Williams and Kathryn DelGenio--  http://augustastate.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_cFOKo6jKoobbFGZ
