Maritime Needs Assessment Survey

31 August 2017

The CONtiNuity of care and support for the autism spECTrum disorder (CONNECT) team is conducting a massive Maritime needs assessment survey to provide insight about the needs of autistic adults and their caregivers in the Maritimes.

We invite your members, as a service provider to the ASD community, to complete the Maritime Needs Assessment Survey associated with adults on the autism spectrum disorder (ASD). You option is important!

You can access it by visiting CONNECT’s Web page at http://www.spor-maritime-srap.ca/our-research/connect-project.  You just need to click on “Fill out the survey”.  It should take about 20 minutes to complete.

The results of this extensive survey will provide a snapshot of the reality experienced by the ASD community. We will be able to identify the services available, how they are available and those missing to improve the support to adults with ASD and their families.

Therefore, we would be most grateful if you would invite all your acquaintance from the ASD community to complete the survey (parents, caregivers, adults, professionals and service providers) via email or word- of-mouth; and don’t forget to share and like the news on your social media!

We are counting on your cooperation to promote this important survey among your professional and social networks.  We have a short promotional video that explains the project and how to complete the survey in order to support you in your dissemination process. Here is the link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGa0-a-PJ2E.  Feel free to share this video!

The CONNECT team brings together autistic adults, caregivers, researchers, health professionals, government officials, and services providers  and aims to break down barriers and understand the needs and challenges faced by adults living with autism spectrum disorder.

If you need further information, do not hesitate to contact us at connect@mssu.ca.  It will be our pleasure to answer any questions you may have.

We thank you in advance for your participation, and thus your contribution to improving the services and quality of life of the ASD community.
