Autism ETA Cohort Study

August 31, 2020 - August 31, 2023

CAR researchers, our colleagues across CHOP and Penn, and autistic partners are collaborating to address several obstacles that autistic youth and their families face during the transition to adulthood.

What are the goals of the study?

The goal of this study is to learn more about the decisions you make about transportation, including driving. We also hope to learn about how transportation influences quality of life and other outcomes.

What will happen during the visit or online?

First, parents will answer questions about themselves and their child. Then, both parents and their child will complete up to six surveys over the course of two years. The surveys will ask about your thoughts and experiences with transportation and driving, quality of life, relationships, and other outcomes.

How will this help families?

We are identifying information that autistic youth and parents can use to make decisions about driving vs. other forms of transportation, and best practices for teaching autistic drivers.

Eligibility Criteria

Parents and their child between 16-21 years old who are on the autism spectrum.
