Ecological Momentary Assessment of Leisure Activity Participation Among Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders

Description

This project aims to use an ecological momentary assessment (EMA) to better understand the patterns of leisure activity among adults with ASD who live independently and to examine the relationships between the levels of participation in leisure activity and perceived stress, anxiety, and self-regulation skills. This is a partnership between the Institute on Community Integration and the University of Minnesota Duluth’s Psychology Department.

The project is recruiting adults with autism who live alone or independently with roommate(s) and have access to a computer or smartphone to study the types and frequency of leisure activities they do in their free time. Those enrolled may be compensated up to $65 for participating in this study. To learn more or to enroll, please email leisurestudy@umn.edu
