AASPIRE Internet Use, Community, & Wellbeing Study
The “Internet Use, Community, and Well-Being Study” examines topics such as Internet use, identity, sense of community, well-being, and social support among adults on the autistic spectrum and adults with and without other disabilities. This information may inform future efforts to improve well-being through promoting Internet usage. Data for the “Internet Use, Community, and Well-Being Study” was collected as part of the Gateway Project.
This study is closed to new participants.
The Gateway Project
Starting in 2008, the Gernsbacher Lab and the Academic Autistic Spectrum Partnership in Research and Education (AASPIRE) worked together on the Gateway Project, a secure online registration system committed to respect, inclusion, accessibility, and community relevance. In 2012, data collection was completed on all of AASPIRE’s studies through the Gateway system. The Gateway Project continues to be run by Gernsbacher Lab.
