Done, quite interesting questions. Only minor issue was the repeated use of person with autism but apart from that it was good.

Done. Easy and well written. (Often we get questionably written ones on here which often makes me doubtful about whether I should do more.)

I loathe questions like this, especially when there is no middle-ground "neither/both" or "don't know" option and I cannot skip any of the questions:

"I am able to do things as well as most other people." (pick from strongly agree/agree/disagree/strongly disagree)

I cannot answer that sort of question in a useful way when there are no specific things mentioned, not even any context offered. I could answer "strongly agree" or "strongly disagree", "agree" or "disagree" and any one of those answers could be either true or false depending on what specific thing-doing-ability/context I was thinking of and you would have no way of ever knowing what my answer actually meant....so what is the point of answering it at all?

^ I thought the same. For example I'm able to write reports better than some people can, but I have extreme difficulty tying my shoes.

You need to get Permission from Alex to solicit participation in surveys on WrongPlanet.

Hi all

Thanks for your interest in taking part - I have PM'd Alex for permission to re-post the link. Really sorry that I didn't do this to begin with. I will update this when I hear back from him.

Thank you also to those who have taken part and given feedback. This will be really useful in helping us improve future research projects.
