Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This study is designed to examine the knowledge and attitudes that college students have of individuals with Autism.  A three-part survey will be utilized to conduct this research.  The three parts of the survey will include a demographics portion, a situational portion to assess college students’ attitudes toward individuals with Autism, and a knowledge portion to determine how much knowledge college students have in regards to Autism.  The purpose of this study is to determine if there is a correlation between students’ scores on the situational portion and students’ scores on the knowledge portion.  We anticipate that students who score higher on the knowledge portion of the survey, meaning that they have a greater amount of knowledge regarding Autism, will have higher scores on the situational portion of the survey as well, meaning that they demonstrate a greater amount of acceptance towards individuals with Autism, than students who have low scores on the knowledge portion.
