    Hi there, We are looking for people with Autism to complete about 20 minutes worth of questionnaires for our research into self identity in people with Autism.  We were just wondering if anyone who uses this forum would be interested in completing these questionnaires?  Here is the link to the study:'s the official info:

    Project Title:Identity in Autism – an exploration of content and impact.Invitation:You are invited to take part in a research project.  The project aims to find out what people with Autism think about their identity as a person with Autism.Who is conducting this research?The project is being conducted by psychology researchers at the University of Bath.  It is supervised by two qualified clinical psychologists. Who can take part?People aged 16 or older with Autism.  We are defining the word Autism to include ASD, Asperser’s Syndrome, High Functioning Autism, Atypical Autism, PDD and PDD not otherwise specified.Unfortunately this project is not open to people aged 15 or younger or those who have a known or suspected learning disability.  What will happen?The study will involve completing six questionnaires online.  These will ask you questions about your Autism, your general health and your wellbeing.  The questionnaires will take about 20 minutes to complete.  Your answers will be kept anonymous and confidential.Benefits and risks:We cannot promise the project will help you directly but the outcomes of the research project may help inform research and healthcare in the future. We do not expect that there will be any major disadvantages of taking part in the project.  However some people might find it difficult to answer questions about their wellbeing.If you have any questions about the project, please email the research team on 

    Thanks in advance for your help!(I can’t find any information about checking this with administrators before posting so hopefully it’s ok to post this directly on to the forum – sorry if it’s not and please tell me who I should ask!)



    Thank you so much to everyone who has completed the survey so far. Your responses have been really helpful. We only need another 10 people to complete the survey now! If anyone else would like to complete it the link will be live for another week or so. Thanks!
