for Teens and Adults with Asperger Profiles

AANE has designed this brief (5-10 minute) survey for teens and adults with Asperger's and related Autism Spectrum profiles. (A medical diagnosis is not required to participate.) 

This survey is guaranteed 100% anonymous. It was sent to several thousand people. No identifying information (such as name or email address) will be requested or collected.

We encourage you to be completely honest in your answers. This will help us get the most accurate information possible about everyone's experiences.

Results of this survey will be shared at AANE's spring 2018 conference on Self-Esteem and later published on the AANE website.
