Curtin Autism Research Group at Curtin University

research results being analysed

Calling counsellors who work with autistic clients! You are invited to join us in a new research project conducted by the Curtin Autism Research Group at Curtin University in Perth, WA.

If you have experience working with autistic clients and their families, we want to hear from you!

What is it about?

We aim to understand your beliefs, knowledge and experience delivering relationships and sexuality support for your autistic client.

What do I have to do?

You will participate in a small focus group discussion with your peers. This could be in-person in Perth, or online.

The sessions will explore your knowledge, beliefs and experience in relation to Relationships and Sexuality Education for autistic individuals. The session will be recorded for audio.

How much time will it take?

The focus group will take between 60 – 90 minutes. Prior to attending, we will send you an information sheet to read, and a consent form to sign. The session will take place before the end of June 2024.

Why participate?

  • Contribute to valuable knowledge that aims to help improve the life of autistic individuals.
  • Connect with your peers around common challenges.
  • Learn more about Relationships and Sexuality Education for client work.
  • Help shape future policies and practices.
