"AASPIRE Internet Use, Community, and Well-Being Study"

What is the AASPIRE Internet Use, Community, and Well-Being Study?

The Internet Use, Community, and Well-Being Study will help us understand how autistic adults* and adults with and without other disabilities use the Internet for social purposes and also to examine identity, sense of community, well-being, and social support among autistic adults and adults with and without other disabilities.

We are collecting this information through an online survey.

This information may inform future efforts to improve well-being through promoting Internet usage and social connections.

This study is currently closed to new participants. We will be posting results when they are available.


This study is funded by Portland State University, the Burton Blatt Institute, and Michael Morris.

OHSU IRB #5568

Principal Investigators: Christina Nicolaidis, MD, MPH, Oregon Health & Science University; Katherine McDonald, PhD, Syracuse University; Dora Raymaker, MS, Autistic Self Advocacy Network
