Preferences for Online Research (University of Leeds)+

Dear Students and Families,

My name is Anita and I am a researcher at the University of Leeds. I am trying to find out how we can make research and testing more exciting and enjoyable for autistic teens, given our current climate of online learning, research, and meetings. To do this, I hope to interview (online) 10 autistic adolescents (between 12-16 years) to get their opinions on different types of online research. As a thank you, each participant will get a £10 amazon voucher.

If you are interested in taking part or would like more information, please contact me using the email bellow.

Thank you and I hope you all take care and stay safe.

Anita Balcer-Whittle, BSc (Hons), MSc
