Our team is looking for youth and young adults on the autism spectrum to evaluate an online workplace disclosure decision-aid tool called DISCLOSURE (Do I Start the Conversation and Let On, Speak Up and Reveal?). We want to assess the usability, feasibility, and acceptability of the tool and if it supports self-determination and decision-making skills.

Who can participate:

  • Youth and young adults on the autism spectrum (age 15-29)
  • Has paid work experience or is looking for work
  • Able to access internet and a tech device
  • Able to communicate in English
  • Lives in Canada

Call to action:

Are you a Canadian youth or young adult on the autism spectrum? Consider participating in a pilot evaluation of an online workplace disclosure decision-aid tool called DISCLOSURE (Do I Start the Conversation and Let On, Speak Up and Reveal?).

Funding agency:

CHILD-BRIGHT, CIHR-SSHRC, Bloorview Research Institute Kimel Family Opportunities Fund

What’s involved:

As part of this study, you will be asked to review/interact with the tool and complete two online surveys to evaluate the tool. You will complete the first survey before you review the tool and the second one after. The first survey will take around 10-15 minutes to complete and the second survey will take around 15-20 minutes. The two surveys will be completed online using a platform called Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap). You will be given a webpage link to access the tool, which includes three PDF documents and short videos. The time taken to review/interact with the tool parts may vary but should take at least 1 hour. You must read the entire tool once and complete one activity / question in the tool.

Participants will receive an e-gift-card and can also receive volunteer hours as a token of appreciation for participating.
