Research Requests


Aspergers Victoria regularly receives requests from researchers to advertise opportunities for our members to be involved in research projects.

Listed below are current projects. Please ensure you check out the requirements carefully before deciding to be involved.

If you have a research study that is relevant to what we do and which may be appropriate for us to publicise on our website, please send an email to the Research Requests Co-ordinator with a copy of the research project that you want publicised through us, together with a short summary of the research project and a copy of the ethics approval associated with the research. We will consider your request and respond to you as soon as possible.

We would also appreciate you forwarding us the report or summary at the end of your project, so we may inform our members of the outcome of the research projects they may participate in.
