York ASD Partnership York Region Needs Assessment

The York ASD Partnership in collaboration with researchers at Brock University and York University are conducting a survey to understand the service and support needs and perceptions of adults with ASD, parent/family caregivers of individuals with ASD, and professionals working with individuals with ASD in York Region. This survey is funded by the generous support of the Ontario Trillium Foundation.

The survey will be open until April 1, 2017. It will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. If you are unable to complete the survey in one sitting you can return to the survey and complete it where you left off at any time.

We apologize in advance that you may receive the survey more than once as it is being distributed by multiple partners.

If you are an adult with ASD, a parent/family caregiver of a person with ASD, an educator or professional who works with people with ASD living or working in York Region you may be eligible to participate. Please take the survey via the link below:
