Seeking UK Research Participants: Lived Experiences of Autistic and Non-Autistic Individuals With AN

What factors affect disordered eating in autistic and non-autistic individuals? Do social or sensory differences play a role? We would like to explore lived experiences of autistic and non-autistic individuals with anorexia nervosa and their parents/caregivers.

Participants must be UK residents 18+ years old, fluent in English and who fall into either of the following categories:

  1. Parent of an autistic individual with current anorexia nervosa (including atypical anorexia nervosa) OR in recovery/remission from anorexia nervosa (here defined as 3+ years since your most recent, significant acute episode);
  2. Parent of a non-autistic individual with current anorexia nervosa (including atypical anorexia nervosa) OR in recovery/remission from anorexia nervosa (here defined as 3+ years since your most recent, significant acute episode).

This study will involve interviewing you with your child/ward. This study involves conducting interviews with you both together, at the same time, therefore both members of your pair must be willing to participate. We aim to carry out interviews over the phone or on an online platform.

If you are interested in participating in this research, please watch the following video https://youtu.be/O83MgZOMieo, or contact the lead researcher for more information at E.Nimbley@sms.ed.ac.uk.
