Obtaining Consent from Young People with Autism to Participate in Research
Loyd, Daisy
British Journal of Learning Disabilities, v41 n2 p133-140 Jun 2013
Young people with autism were involved in a study examining the participation of young people with autism in drama education. This study considers the approaches devised to obtain consent from ten young people with autism who communicated in different ways. The process of obtaining consent and monitoring assent is outlined and evaluated. The research illustrates that young people with autism who communicate in different ways can give their consent and be helped to understand what it means to be involved in research. Challenges specific to researching a group of young people with autism are considered and implications for future research presented.
