Autism & Intimacy

Mullum Road Clinic has Psychologists that have a special interest in, and specialise in the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).  Research into ASD is important in helping us to understand many important issues.  We would appreciate any parents, carers and teachers who live or work with young people with ASD, to give some of their valuable time to complete a short survey.

This survey contains sensitive and challenging issues, but will develop a resource to support families, carers and teachers to talk to children with autism about intimacy.  Please read on for more detailed information that is aimed at mature, aged readers.

Details About The Survey
Autism, sex and intimacy is an important issue for young people with ASD. Two surveys have been developed to help provide insight into how pornography access is affecting young people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and to identify how to support young people with ASD, their parents, carers and teachers.

The survey is called ‘Porn is not the Norm’ and is auspiced by DVRCV and supported by Reality and Risk, the City of Maroondah, Department of Health and Human Services and Batforce.
Reality and Risk and DVRCV have previously developed training and education resources aimed at young people.logo
