The Academic Autistic Spectrum Partnership in Research and Education (AASPIRE) is making a tool that people on the autism spectrum can use to tell healthcare providers important information. They are looking for people to review the tool and tell the researchers and share thoughts and impressions. The study takes about an hour. Participants can do the study over email, instant messenger chat, telephone, or, if in Portland, Oregon, in person.

You may be able to participate in one of the studies if you live in the U.S. and 1. You are an adult on the autistic spectrum or 2. You have assisted an adult on the autistic spectrum with healthcare appointments.

If you take part in the interview, you will be paid $50.
