What kind of worries do people have?

What might make people worry less or worry more?

Do people with Asperger Syndrome experience worry differently to people without Asperger Syndrome?

<font=2>With the information taken from this survey I hope to begin to answer these important questions and build on our understanding of how better to support people with worry. I invite anyone with Asperger Syndrome or High Functioning Autism over the age of eighteen to take part. Throughout the study I use the term Asperger Syndrome to include people with a diagnosis of High Functioning Autism too.

The study has full ethical approval from Royal Holloway, University of London and from the National Autistic Society. If you have any questions about the study you can contact me on the details given and I will be pleased to answer them as best I can. If you would rather I send you a paper copy of the survey to complete then please contact me and I will put one including a stamped addressed envelope for it's return in the post to you.

Thank you for taking the time to read this information. The survey should take you about 30 minutes to complete and it would be a great help if you would complete as much as you feel able.
