Questionnaire: Autism friendly initiatives in Ireland

Posted: 6 September, 2019

A group of researchers, led by Michelle O’Donoghue, Lecturer in Speech and Language Therapy, with support from Katie Doherty, student of MSc (Professional Qualification) in Occupational Therapy, at the University of Limerick are researching why organisations run autism-friendly initiatives and what supports are in place for such initiatives.

They invite you to take part in a study exploring the drivers, facilitators and barriers to business, arts and community based ‘autism-friendly’ initiatives by completing this questionnaire.

Through this study the research team aims to:

  • Compile information on the range of autism friendly initiatives currently being undertaken in Ireland
  • Identify reasons why organisations engage in autism-friendly initiatives (drivers)
  • Document the facilitators and barriers to setting up and running these initiatives
  • Inform ongoing development of autism-friendly initiatives.

This is an online questionnaire and will take up to 20 minutes to complete and was designed for the purposes of the current study. Participation is anonymous.

Deadline is Monday 30th September 2019.

If you have any questions about the study please contact michelle.odonoghue@ul.ie
