Participants required for project about autism and circus skills

Please note, this is not an Autism Centre project.

I am a student at Sheffield Hallam University completing my final research project for MA Autism Spectrum. I have designed a questionnaire through which I aim to gain an insight into current opinions and perspectives held regarding the abilities of individuals on the autism spectrum and personal developmental areas in which improvement is generally required. Simultaneously, I am seeking views and perceptions of circus skills and what skills or abilities are believed to be required for, or learnt through the processes of engaging in basic circus skills.

I aim to examine whether there is a correlation between the two sets of responses in order to determine whether there is a potential space for basic circus skills in the lives of individuals on the autism spectrum.

I hope that through ascertaining where circus and autism are positioned in peoples’ thinking at the moment, an understanding may be derived as to why circus is not widely used in the UK as a tool or vehicle for personal and social development.
