Speaking and Non-Speaking Autistic Students in Inclusive Education Research

This study seeks to explore the self-reported inclusive educational experiences of speaking and non-speaking autistic high school students in Canada. As such, this research will fill a gap in research and understanding on the self-reported experiences of autistic youth in Canadian schools and will help to inform inclusive education policy and practice in school jurisdictions. Autistic students will have the opportunity to share their unique perspectives through the use of an online survey, and if they wish, participate in an email interview. The online design of the research provides flexible opportunities for autistic participants to receive and share information.
