Image description: light blue poster with two black swirl designs. In bold at the top, it says “Paid Research Opportunity for Autistic Adults” under Harrop Lab, UNC Chapel Hill.
Under the bold heading, it gives a description saying, “What do you think autism research should focus on? What has been your experience with autism research? How can we improve it?”
Under these questions, in bold text, it says, “We want to hear from autistic teens and adults about your priorities and experiences regarding autism research.”
There are two bullet points under this statement. The first bullet point says a 20-minute online survey with five-dollar compensation. The second bullet says that there is also an optional thirty-minute interview with a twenty-dollar compensation. Under this bullet point, there is a sub-bullet in italics that says, “The interview can be over text, audio, or video chat, and questions will be provided beforehand.”
At the bottom of the page, it says, “Eligible participants include teens fifteen plus and adults with an autism diagnosis or those who are in the process of seeking an autism diagnosis. Those in groups historically underrepresented in research (transgender people, people of color, nonspeaking people) are encouraged to participate.”
To the right of the page, it says, “Email us at email@example.com to sign up or ask questions!”
