      MSc Research Project

      Hi everyone! I am currently studying a Masters in Forensic Psychology and collecting data for my research project. Autistic individuals may be vulnerable to inappropriate sexual experiences or behaviours due to untailored sex education. This can increase risk of victimisation, or risk of behaviour being misinterpreted by certain professionals. Taking part in this research will help to increase our understanding of this vulnerability and ultimately help to implement tailored sex education programmes.

      Anyone can take part in the study as I am looking at varying traits of autism and alexithymia in the population. If you are diagnosed with autism or believe you have higher autistic traits, I would also be very grateful if you could take part. The research is an online questionnaire that should take approximately 25 minutes, just follow the link provided.


      Thank you!

      Dee Nicholas, principal researcher.
