About the study

The current COVID-19 pandemic has a tremendous impact on society as a whole, but potentially especially on autistic individuals. Many organisations and media outlets have been posting articles with tips/advice, but my colleagues from Ghent University and I want to first get a better, more complete image of the specific needs of autistic adults, by asking them directly.

To this end, my research team put together an online survey, asking about the particular challenges of this period, as well as whether certain things are also easier, and finally, about any specific needs you may have. The survey can be filled out by anyone (with or without Autism Spectrum Disorder) of 18 years or older, living in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, or Belgium.
