Researchers at Curtin University are conducting a short survey to find out about your experiences of having a person on the autism spectrum in your workplace and whether you have tried using any resources to help you understand or support people on the autism spectrum in the workplace.
Your responses and suggestions will help us to understand what type of information would help you to make your workplace more inclusive for people on the autism spectrum, enabling us to create new resources that would meet your needs as a DES provider, or an employer, manager or work colleague of employees on the autism spectrum.
What are we asking you to do?
We’re asking you to complete an online survey that will take approximately 15 to 30 minutes to complete. You can pause the survey at any time, return to it and then submit your responses when you're ready. Participation is completely voluntary, and your contribution will remain anonymous. If you decide to take part and you start the survey but then change your mind, that’s okay. You can withdraw your participation at any time without giving a reason. Simply stop completing the survey. If you start to complete the survey online but then choose to quit it, we will use any data already collected.
The benefits of participating
Your contribution and the results of this research will help us to provide benefits to people on the autism spectrum and the people they work with (including you), when we create resources to educate and support their employers, work colleagues and others who support employees on the autism spectrum.
