The Autism Society of South Central Wisconsin is assisting Ph.D candidate Michael Sullivan (who himself is on the Autism Spectrum) in recruiting participants for the research study explained below. Participation is strictly voluntary and participants can withdraw at anytime.  Please contact Michael Sullivan directly if you are interested. 

The study is investigating the life histories of university or college students or graduates who are on the Autism Spectrum to discuss their time in middle and high school and how these lived experiences impacted students’ success in pursuing post-secondary education.  

Your participation in the study will help us understand what works in schools and what hinders students on the Autism Spectrum in achieving success in middle and high school and eventual attendance at university or college.  

If you can participate, or have any questions about the study, please contact:
