Autistics United Canada is #AskingAutistics for thoughts on national autism and disability policy.
Your responses will help us advocate on the policies that affect our lives.
This survey usually takes at least 15 minutes to fill out. There are 4 parts. You don't have to answer every question, and you can say as little or as much as you like.
The survey is ONLY for autistic people living in Canada or autistic people with Canadian citizenship living abroad. If you need help, you can ask for a trusted person to help you fill it out, but the answers need to be your own.
This survey is easier to fill out on a larger screen, like a computer. On a phone or tablet, it is best viewed horizontally (in landscape mode).
Your answers will NOT be saved until you submit. If you plan to write a lot, you can write your answers separately on a word processor (e.g. Microsoft Word, WordPad) so that you can save as you write. Then, you can copy and paste your answers into the survey.
You can also give feedback in other ways:
1. In a longer form with the first two questions broken down into smaller questions: bit.ly/AskingAutisticsCanada16
2. Downloading and filling out the survey in Microsoft Word or PDF format from our website: https://www.autisticsunitedca.org/AskingAutisticsCanada.html
3. Using your preferred communication method (e.g. video call, audio call, text chat, email) during an interview.
