Autism Research Opportunity
How head injury affects autistic adults, and their relationship with someone close.
King's College London scientists are investigating how head injuries affect autistic adults. Head injury can lead to unpleasant symptoms, mental health challenges, communication difficulties, or sometimes no issues at all. They're also interested in hearing from someone close to the affected person (optional).
Have you ever had a blow to the head causing you to be knocked out and/or dazed and confused?
Are you also an autistic adult?
If yes, then researchers at King's are interested in hearing more about your experience.
Who can join?
- Autistic Adults (18 or older)
- Experienced a head injury resulting in passing out or feeling dazed/confused
Group 2 (optional):
- An adult chosen by, and well-known to, the autistic person
- Willing to discuss the impact of the head injury
Participants will complete two questionnaires and have a conversation about the head injury (online or in person options). Topics will include mental and physical health, sensory sensitivity, and social/healthcare experiences. Suggesting another person for their views is optional. The session takes about 1 hour. You'll receive a £20 Love2Shop Voucher for your time.
