UW Research Project is Looking for Teachers and Paraeducators

Dr. Jill Locke and her colleagues at the UW SMART Center (smartcenter.uw.edu) invite you and your colleagues a study that aims to understand what evidence-based practices are used with autistic students who are partially or fully included in a general education setting. 

Who is invited to participate?

K-5 general educators, special educators, and paraeducators who work with an autistic student are welcome to participate in our study. To be eligible, the autistic student that educators work with must spend 15 minutes or more a day in a general education classroom.

What is required for participation?

Educators who choose to participate will complete our online survey (~45-60 minutes), which examines the factors that predict evidence-based practice use. Participants will receive a $60 gift card for completion of the survey. Some participants will be invited to a follow-up interview (~30-45 minutes) and will receive an extra $40 gift card. You can learn more in our study flyer.

All data collection for the study is virtual. We will not be entering schools in the 2023-2024 school year and beyond.

Please complete our brief interest form if you would like to participate.  If you know other educators who may be interested, please share this form with them: tinyurl.com/asdprep
