Research Study Description

Hello! We are inviting caregivers of adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to take an online survey for research. We want to learn whether there is a connection between the social determinants of health and use of health care services in autistic adults. Social determinants of health are factors such as age, race, gender, insurance status, and housing status that can impact the health of an individual. This survey will ask questions about your adult child/dependent/family member’s use of healthcare services, health conditions and status such as insurance, housing and geographical location. It includes questions about your adult child/dependent/family member’s social, communication and sensory challenges and whether these behaviors pose as a barrier to getting healthcare services. The survey will take about 20 minutes to complete.
