Development of Personal Choice in Adolescents

Research Question:
How do personal choice and autonomy develop in adolescents? In particular, how do these develop in autistic adolescents?

Basic Study Information

In this online study, a parent and their adolescent will independently complete brief surveys. The adolescent will complete their survey first, and it may take up to 15 minutes. Afterwards, the parent will complete their survey, which may take up to 20 minutes. We hope this research will lead to expanding resources that support autonomy and independence as adolescents transition into adulthood.
