A Curtin Autism Research Group study is looking to make contact with adolescents aged 12-17 with ASD and their parents/carers.

Participants will be required to attend a 2 hour, one-off session where your child will be asked to complete a number of communication-based tasks.

Social communication is the use of language within a social setting to comment, ask questions, express opinions or tell a story. This is often a difficulty faced by teenagers with ASD. Learning what social communication currently looks like and how this might be related to other factors may help to find a way to improve these skills in young people with ASD.
