While the responses keep trickling in for the Strengths and Challenges survey, we have launched another two questionnaires that are shorter and more open-ended.
In one of them, we are interested in hearing your thoughts about how you personally view autism - as part of your identify or as a disability, or something in between or a combination... Whatever your thoughts are, we would love to hear them. We aim to publish the results so that funding agencies, scientists, and neurotypical people in general can read and learn.
The second questionnaire is exclusively for women (transwomen included of course) and asks an open-ended question about what it's like to be on the spectrum as a woman. Female autistic people have so far had a very low profile, so we are hoping to find out more about your challenges, thoughts and wishes and anything else you can think of.
