Survey

Towards a quantitative definition of Neurodiversity
Our survey is currently under active development, and we hope to have a public version out shortly. We want to make sure we’re asking all the right questions before we ask anyone to invest time and effort into filling it out. In the meantime, please submit
here!

Note:
this survey is not currently subject to an IRB
, and
the answers provided are available to anyone looking at this document
. This is a preliminary attempt to gather information and will be used towards an IRB-approved research project in the mid future.

Note that
there is no personally identifying information in the survey
, and your answers are 100% anonymous. (If you are logged into coda when you take the survey you’ll be given the choice to fill it out anonymously.)

Check the
for information about how to answer on the questions that want a value from 1-10. Spoiler alert:
most of your answers should probably fall between 4-6
unless you experience something significantly differently than the general population.

Sample Data
Here’s a partial sample dataset. The survey is not currently accepting new data, and the existing data is not really valid because a bunch of questions were added after most of the answers were already submitted but I leave it here as a proof of concept.

Total Replies in Sample Dataset:
51
Neurotype:
Autism
