Autistic Adults Relationships and Sexuality Study

Do You Have High-Functioning

Autism, Asperger’s Disorder, or PDD-NOS?

Are you between the ages of 21-75?

Are your cognitive abilities within the low average to above average range?

Would you be interested in learning more about yourself and how you

feel about relationships and sexuality?

If you answered yes to the above questions, you are eligible to participate in a

research study being conducted by researchers at the

North-Shore-LIJ Center for Autism (New York, USA)

and the

University of New Brunswick (Fredericton, Canada).

The purpose of this study is to better understand sexuality and relationships of adults with high-functioning autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). The information collected from the study may increase knowledge of how best to help teens and adults with ASDs experience healthy sexual development.

Participation in this study involves completion of a set of online questionnaires at www.unbstudy.com that will take between 45 minutes and 1¼ hours to complete.

I thought you didn't want people to listen to us. Yet you're helping a study into our experiences. Is it only in certain areas that you don't want people to listen to HFA adults?
