Autistic Adults needed for a nature study!

elsmith14 Community member Posts: 1 Listener

Hello! Calling autistic adults (18 years+) 

Please take part in our online study and tell us about your sensory experiences when engaging with nature.

You are welcome to take part no matter your engagement with nature:

 If you don't at all

 If you engage directly (e.g., visiting nature)

 If you engage indirectly (e.g., watching nature videos)

 The study has been designed with input from autistic community partners.

Purpose and Outcomes 

The study is part of a master's dissertation at Durham University.
We want to understand more about what engaging with nature looks like for autistic people and the sensory-related experiences. The current view is that engaging with nature is beneficial for everyone, but we need to understand more about the positive and negative sensory experiences for autistic people and how this may relate to diverse ways of engaging with nature. The findings could inform nature-based learning and health and wellbeing interventions and therapies.
