Help us Improve Autism Research by Participating in the Autism EXPECT Survey 

Have you ever participated in an autism study? How was it? If you have never enrolled in a study, why not? We want to understand what drives people to participate and what makes them quit. Your feedback will help us help scientists develop better studies that are positive experiences for participants.
Click HERE to take the brief survey. All participants will be entered for the chance to win an iPad.
