Thank you for considering taking part in our research project. We are a research group, within the Departments of Psychology and Psychiatry at the University of Cambridge, specialising in on-line psychological research. This research project is aiming to understand whether individuals diagnosed with autism have specific variations in their genes that contribute to the condition and related behaviours. In order to understand autism, we must identify the differences between autism and typical individuals.

Who can take part?

Anyone who has a clinical diagnosis of an autism spectrum condition can take part in this study.
