Have you supervised or supported an autistic person at a skilled job?

Take Part in a Study about Autism and Employment


The Academic Autistic Spectrum Partnership in Research and Education (AASPIRE) wants to learn more about what helps people on the autism spectrum succeed in skilled or professional jobs*. Our goal is to understand what might make it easier for autistic people to get and keep skilled or professional jobs.

You may be able to participate in the study if you:

  • live in the U.S.
  • are age 18 or older
  • have ever successfully managed, supervised, or supported someone with an autism spectrum diagnosis (ASD, autism, Asperger’s, PDD-NOS, Rett syndrome, or CDD) in a skilled or professional job

The study is an in-depth interview about your experiences supervising or supporting autistic people in professional settings. You may participate by email, telephone, text-based online chat, online video conference, or, if you live in the Portland, Oregon metro area, in person.

This is a confidential research study. You will not be asked to do or say anything that violates laws regarding employee confidentiality or to disclose proprietary information about your work.

The interview may take 1-2 hours. If you take part, you will be given a Visa gift card worth $50.

* A skilled or professional job is a job that needs specialized certification or education beyond what a person gets during their first weeks on a job. Some examples are: scientist, hair stylist, architect, or plumber. If you’re not sure if your kind of work qualifies, contact us.
