Codesigning and evaluating the usability of a workplace disclosure tool for Canadian youth and young adults on the autism spectrum


Summary

Our team is looking for youth and young adults on the autism spectrum to help codesign and provide feedback on a prototype (early draft) of an online workplace disclosure decision-aid guide and planning tool. We want to know if you found the tool useful, easy to use, liked or disliked it, and if anything needs to be added, changed, and/or removed.

What's involved

You will be sent a link and password to download and review the online tool. You must read the entire tool once to participate in the study. You will then participate in a 2-hour, online, interactive session using Zoom and Slido platforms with other youth and young adults on the autism spectrum. Zoom is an online platform that allows us to communicate using video, audio, and/or text (through the chat function). Slido is another online platform that allows you to answer questions anonymously by typing out your response using your tech device. You will be given an information sheet about Zoom and Slido before your session. During the session you will provide feedback on the tool and participate in activities to identify anything that you feel should be added, removed, and/or changed.

Participants will receive an e-gift-card and can also receive volunteer hours as a token of appreciation for participating.
