Do you have permission from Alex (this website's owner) to solicit for participants in your study?

Mod comment:
Members have been sharing these here in thousands of threads for the past 12 years, and with that volume, you could gain useful information from that source as background information too, perhaps.

Your study sounds interesting however you need owner permission before soliciting for subjects on a privately owned website. Members in good standing with substantial contributions previously can post links to their personal website or project but unknown strangers cannot. You could PM the owner Alex or contact his Facebook page. Meantime your link has been removed, sorry.

It would be more meaningful to get levels 2 and 3 as well. Not just people that straddle the NT line.

Provisional Approval:

As Alex has been unable thus far to process the permission request, I have been sent the documentation to review, and am satisfied with the bona fides et al. So the OP has provisional approval to continue and may post necessary links to this academic study.

The research is still ongoing.
Update:

What will the study involve? You can choose between:
- Survey Questionnaire
- Or open dialog discussions to specific questions based on your work experience

Good luck on excluding subjects with co-morbids.

And good luck including subjects with college degrees within the specified age group.

The really annoying thing is the lack of responses will be put down to our fault.

Hardly. The qualifications alone would seem to exclude most of the members of this community.

But will they realise that? I'm a no on two counts (nearly three) lots and lots of work experience. How is this research going to help ASD in the workplace if they don't include in the research anyone with comorbids?

Yes, probably most of us have some comorbidies, even if in some cases "just" depression or anxiety disorders.

At least in some countries this will also not apply to many people. Where I live Bachelor Degrees at university did not exist when the people who are now close to 45 got their degrees. If they have a university degree they had more than 15 years of education. Some schools here are such that primary, middle and high school together take 13 years. A Bachelor degree usually takes at least 3 years. That's 16 years of education and thus too much. Anyone with 12 years of school and a Bachelors Degree must not have had to repeat any school year or have taken one semester longer to complete their Bachelor's Degree to stay within that time range, but taking 3 1/2 years for the Bachelor Degree is fairly common. Furthermore, since Bachelor Degrees are still relatively new here, until recently most people who got a Bachelor Degree also tried to get a Masters Degree. The vast majority of people with a Masters degree are outside that time range.
It may apply to more people in the USA, and maybe Poalo Fra is mainly looking for participants from the USA and didn't specify. Or maybe just the thing in brackets matters ( currently in college/university or completed ) and the time range is not that exact.

Only if their replies are evaluated separately.
