Bilingualism in autism: measuring the impact of a new resource hub.

What's the study about?

This study is piloting a new website, which contains high-quality, research-backed educational resources about autism and bilingualism. We are interested in how effective this new website is at educating three groups about this topic: parents of autistic children in bilingual families, educators, and clinicians (such as SLTs, GPs, clinical psychologists).

Who can participate?

Participants need to be aged 18+, and should belong to at least one of the above groups (parents, educators, or clinicians), but do not need to know anything about bilingualism and autism to participate, nor do they need to be autistic or bilingual.

What will participants be doing?

The study involves two brief online questionnaires, one month apart. We will ask you a little bit about yourself, and your family or job (depending on if you are taking this questionnaire as a parent or a professional). We will then ask you for your opinions on the topic, before and after accessing our resources.

The first questionnaire should take around 20 minutes, and the second one should take 5 minutes.

Why is this important?

This study is important, as it will help us to understand how useful our resources are. This will help us to improve them where possible, and to distribute them widely so other parents and caregivers will have access to better information about bilingualism at autism. With more information, parents will be able to make more informed choices about the languages they raise their children with.
