Researchers at Dublin City University are working on a study called Autism Spectrum Disorders in the EU (ASDEU) in collaboration with a large group of researchers across different countries in the EU. Further details of the wider project can be found at the project website
As part of this study we are launching 3 surveys in Ireland to find out more about
  •  the costs of living with autism
  • diagnosis, treatment and services for children with autism
  • services and supports for adults with autism
The surveys have been translated into 12 other languages so that the same information can be collected in the other countries participating in this study for the purposes of cross-country comparisons.
We are inviting people with autism, their family carers and professionals working in the area of autism services to complete the online surveys available at To complete the surveys please follow the instructions supplied on the website. Please make sure to select the surveys for Ireland.
All responses will be gathered anonymously and cannot be linked back to you. The completed surveys will be returned to our partners in this research
  • Dr. Lidia García Pérez, Fundación Canaria de Investigación Sanitaria (FUNCANIS), Santa Cruz de Tenerife
  • Professor Diana Schendel, Aarhus University, Denmark
  • Professor Ricardo Canal Bedia, who is based at the University of Salamanca in Spain.
