Experiences of Bullying in Asperger Syndrome

Hello, My name is Susan Grennan. I am a final year psychology student in NUIG. At the Irish Centre for Autism and Neurodevelopmental research (ICAN), we are currently undertaking research on Asperger Syndrome. This research involves looking at past experiences of bullying, social interactions, and one's perception of their quality of life through filling out an online questionnaire, which typically takes between 10-15 minutes to complete. 

Previous research has indicated that individuals with a diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome may experience bullying in childhood. We are interested in investigating the prevalence of bullying. We are also interested in investigating how bullying and early childhood experiences affect quality of life. Currently there is little research on adults with Aspergers so it would be great to conduct this research.
