Invitation to join the study

RESEARCH AUTISM CYGNET MENTORING PROJECT

We are developing a specially designed mentoring programme for young adults on the autism spectrum and assessing whether it is useful.  We thought you may be interested in getting involved in this study.

The study, which is being carried out by London South Bank University, aims to develop a mentoring programme for people on the autism spectrum aged between 18 and 24 years.

The study will involve taking part in mentoring that will last for six months for one hour per week. Each participant will be asked to complete a standardised questionnaire which assesses quality of life three times throughout the study. Participants will also be asked to keep brief recordings of mentoring meetings and participate in an interview (either face-face, via telephone or online) at the end of the mentoring.

We are currently looking for people to take part in the study who would like to receive mentoring or who would like to be a mentor for somebody else. We are particularly interested in hearing from people on the autism spectrum who would like to become mentors.

Depending on the number of people who respond to this invitation, you may or may not be selected to take part in the study, but we will contact you either way to let you know.

Thank you for considering the study. If you have any questions, would like more information or want to let us know you would like to take part, please do not hesitate to contact the researchers, Tara Sims (simst@lsbu.ac.uk) and Damian Milton (miltond@lsbu.ac.uk)
