for Teens and Adults without Asperger/Autism Profiles

Thank you for participating in AANE’s Self-Esteem Survey. This brief (5-10 minute) survey will enable us to compare the responses of those on the autism spectrum to those who consider themselves neurotypical. Therefore, it is very important that you DO NOT TAKE THIS SURVEY IF YOU HAVE OR SUSPECT YOU MIGHT HAVE A DIAGNOSIS RELATED TO AUTISM. This includes: Asperger's, Autism Spectrum, High Functioning / Mild Autism, Nonverbal Learning Disorder, Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Social Communication Disorder.

If any of the above apply to you, please complete the Asperger/autism version instead.

This survey is 100% anonymous; no personal identifying information will be 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. There are no "right" or "wrong" answers.

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