The University of Cambridge and Autism-Europe are cooperating to conduct a study as a part of the AIMS-2 trials project, to explore autistic people and their family carers’ experiences of a range of services across Europe and beyond.
In line with the study, a survey has been created to better understand autistic people’s experiences with accessing services and to uncover any differences in service access and quality between European countries. Services include (but are not limited to) health and mental health services, social care, educational, employment and therapy services.
The survey is open to individuals over 16 years of age (or carers with a family member) with a formal diagnosis of autism, those who are self-diagnosed and/or waiting for an autism diagnostic service. It will ask questions about experiences with services received in the past two years and it takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.
Findings from the study will be used to shape a policy brief document addressing the need to improve service availability and accessibility for autistic people across Europe.
Ethical review of the study
The study has been reviewed by the Psychology Research Ethics Committee of the University of Cambridge.
