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? We hope this research will lead to expanding resources that support autonomy and independence as adolescents transition into adulthood.

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 are currently recruiting adolescents without autism in two age groups: 12-year-olds 17-year-olds All adolescents must be fluent in English. They cannot have autism or an intellectual disability. They should be able to complete the survey independently (audio support is provided for children who are not strong readers). Please make sure to add an email address so that we can contact you!
