In this new, flagship study, researchers from the Aspect Research Centre for Autism Practice (ARCAP) are asking Autistic people and their parents what supports and services matter most to them, so they can lead a good life.

“This project is about Autistic people, for Autistic people and by Autistic people. It’s a big, warm invitation for Autistic people and their parents to share their perspectives and steer Aspect’s future research program,” said Lead Researcher, Kaaren Haas.

”We’re squarely placing the future of our research in the hands of the Autistic community because we believe this is the best way to ensure autism supports and services are relevant, respectful and improve the quality of life of people on the spectrum.”

Autistic people, aged 10 years or older, or parents or primary carers of an autistic person of any age in Australia are encouraged to:

  • Take part in an interview with a researcher, by video call or telephone call; or
  • Write or record (by audio or video) answers to questions that will be sent to them.

Take part in the study

This study is conducted in collaboration with Professor Liz Pellicano from Macquarie University.
