Engaging Siblings of Adults with Autism in Future Planning – The Asperger / Autism Network (AANE)


Engaging Siblings of Adults with Autism in Future Planning


Boston University is doing a research study to develop a new program to increase siblings’ involvement in future planning for their brother/sister with autism spectrum disorder. We are looking for siblings, service providers, and adults with autism for this study. If you participate, you will either participate in a focus group or a one‐on‐one interview. You will be asked to share your ideas about whether families (i.e., adults with autism and siblings) would be interested in participating in a program about future planning, what should be included in this program, and the best format in which to implement the program.

  • Who? Adult siblings, adults with autism, and service providers
  • What? An interview or focus group
  • How long? 1‐2 hours
  • When? At a time convenient for you
  • Where? At a community location
  • Cost? No cost to participate. You will be compensated $20 for your participation in the study.

For more information please contact forward or (617) 358‐4293​

About akutil86

Diagnosed with Aspergers at 34, this blog chronicles some of the life events I've gone through, and how I hope to help others on the Autism Spectrum. Posts that are personal opinions will be moving to another Wordpress site by the end of the year; for those looking for help with autism, I hope you will continue to visit and spread the word about the articles that most of the time are links to something I read. Please let me know what challenges you are facing, and I will do my best to address them. Thanks for reading my blog!
