    Researchers (academic staff) at the Department of Psychology, London South Bank University are recruiting participants for an upcoming study investigating performance on a quality control task related to employment skills.We are looking for people with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder or Asperger’s syndrome who are aged between 18 and 30.The team here have been looking at ways to make people better at a commonly-used quality control task. This checking task is associated with many types of job. We wish to investigate the skills of people with autism on our task, which involves checking labels on a computer and identifying errors. The study is in two parts. In Part 1, we will use eye-tracking software to see what types of strategies participants use to complete the task. In Part 2, we will ask participants to complete some tests of memory and attention. These are also on the computer.If you would like to take part, we will ask you to come into our university, located near Elephant and Castle and Borough tube stations, to work with us for 3-4 hours. If you wish to complete Part 1 only, that is no problem. We will take a break after Part 1 and then ask you if you would like to complete Part 2. You will be able to take breaks at any point in the study and if you change your mind at any point and decide not to take part that is no problem.We will offer payment of £15 for each part of the study, payable in vouchers. Each part takes 60-90 minutes, depending on how many breaks we take.If you are interested in taking part in this study, please email Dr. Clodagh Murray ( with the following details and we will be in touch over the next few weeks to arrange the next step.1.      Name2.      Address3.      Date of Birth4.      Phone Number and preferred time of day to receive a call (if any)We look forward to hearing from you.
