Research into autism and loneliness – participants needed

Sheffield Autistic Society has received the following request for people to take part in research into loneliness in autistic adults:

My name is Kana Umagami, a PhD student at the Centre for Research in Autism and Education (CRAE) at UCL Institute of Education. I am autistic myself, and my research is investigating loneliness in autistic adults. Currently, I am recruiting participants to take part in an online survey on this topic.

Full details about the survey (which takes approximately 20 minutes to complete) are available here.

I am wondering if you could forward this email (or circulate information about my research) to autistic adults in your network so that they can take part in my research?

Who is eligible for this research?

  • Aged over 18 (with no upper age limitation)
  • Living in the UK
  • Able to express their own thoughts (regardless of the ways they communicate)
  • Diagnosed or self-identified as autistic

I hope my research will provide a better understanding of loneliness in autistic adults and look forward to your network’s participation in my study!
