      Vulnerability of individuals with autism spectrum disorder to naïve involvement in criminal activity

      Researchers at Flinders University in Australia invite individuals 18 years or older with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to participate in an online study titled ‘Vulnerability of individuals with autism spectrum disorder to naïve involvement in criminal activity’. This research is being conducted by Rebecca Flower (Rebecca.Flower@...) under the supervision of Associate Professor Robyn Young and Professor Neil Brewer.

      The aim is to understand whether features that may be present in individuals diagnosed with ASD influence their understanding of social situations and appropriate behaviour. 

      There are two sessions, and each is expected to take approximately 1 hour (you may take up to 4 hours to allow for breaks). The second session will occur weeks or possibly months later.

      This session will involve questions about demographic information (including age, gender, diagnosis, and any experiences you have had with the criminal justice system) and a set of statements about your preferences and skills. Following this, you will be asked about your interests, and then to watch some short scenarios and answer 1-2 questions after each.

      Participants who complete the study requirements will receive a $10 (AUD) Amazon voucher.
