The Experience of Being an Adult with Autism Spectrum Disorder Who Expresses a Sexual Minority Identity


Are you on the Autism Spectrum (formally or self-diagnosed)?  Are you 18 or older?  Do you identify as a sexual minority (e.g. gay, lesbian, bisexual, asexual, gray sexual, pansexual, queer, etc.)? Please consider participating in our survey that seeks to understand the experience of being a person with ASD who identifies as a sexual minority identity. 

Participation will be entirely online and includes answering questions about your experience of being a part of this population. Your participation will take as long or short as you would like depending on the amount you choose to share with us; however, it will likely take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

We are three undergraduate nursing students at the University of Vermont working with Laura Lewis, a nurse researcher on a research study about the experience of having Autism Spectrum Disorder and identifying with a sexual minority orientation.  The study is titled “The Experience of Being an Adult with Autism Spectrum Disorder Who Expresses a Sexual Minority Orientation.” 

There are 22 questions in this survey.
