Researchers at the Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre would like to learn about the experiences of people with autism working with Disability Employment Service (DES) providers (as job seekers and/or employees).
Who can participate?
- Adults on the autism spectrum aged 18 years or above who have been in contact with a DES provider (such as CVGT) in Australia as a client or prospective client.
- An immediate family member (i.e., spouse, parent, sibling) or carer of someone with an autism diagnosis who has been in contact with a DES provider (such as CVGT) as a client or prospective client. Also aged 18 years or above.
What is involved?
You can participate in either of the following ways, where you will be asked about your experiences with DES, CVGT and what you would like DES providers to know about autism:
- An online survey. We expect this will take approximately 30 minutes, and you can be entered into the draw, for one of ten $50 Coles Group digital gift cards, or
- A one on one interview (by phone, online chat or video meeting). We expect this will take approximately 60 minutes, and you will be reimbursed with a $40 Coles Group digital gift card.
