- Positive and Negative Affect Schedule [ Time Frame: Change scores: baseline and 3 weeks ]A widely used self-report measure of positive and negative affect with good psychometric properties (Crawford & Henry, 2004) and has been used in previous research to measure negative affect in people with ASD (Samson, Huber, & Gross, 2012).
- Assessment Satisfaction [ Time Frame: 3 weeks ]Participants will be asked to rate their overall satisfaction with the diagnostic assessment, on a 5 point Likert scale.
- Predictability [ Time Frame: 3 weeks ]Participants will be asked to rate, on a 5 point Likert scale, to what extent the information they read prior to their assessment has thus far helped them to know what to expect from the assessment.
