Valeria Garau, a Masters student at the University of Edinburgh supervised by Sue Fletcher-Watson, is conducting research to develop and evaluate a self-report measure of monotropism: a set of survey questions developed by members of the ‘Interest System’ Google Group. Edit: download a PDF of a poster presenting the first results here.
Her questionnaire is now closed. Remarkably it had more than 1100 responses, around 700 of them from autistic people (it was open to anyone aged 16 or over, anywhere in the world, of any neurotype). She will be analysing results over the summer.
