Research Study Description

Researchers at Stanford University are recruiting participants for a study of how autistic women make sense of their emotions. Participants will be invited to fill out an online survey, then take part in a Zoom interview lasting about 45 minutes.

You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:
-are age 18 or older
-identify as female
-are autistic
-have trouble identifying and/or naming your emotions (sometimes referred to as alexithymia)

If you are interested in participating, please fill out this preliminary questionnaire:

If you’re eligible, I’ll reach out within a week with an invitation to be interviewed. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions: [email protected].

This project has been approved by Stanford University’s Institutional Review Board.
