Chatrooms for Teens on the Autism Spectrum - Research Project

Hi Aspergers Teen Chat members,

My name is Barbara Lawer, I am a master's degree student collating data for my research. In order to help me gain an insight into how chatrooms can be of benefit to teenagers with Aspergers and Autism I would like to select some of your posts (from July 2014) from the Aspergers Teen Chat site.

However, I will not be using any of your posts without your consent. Please be assured that any information used in my research would be anonymised. Both names and pseudonyms would be disguised and only small samples of text would be used in analysis or discussion so that text is not identifiable. Furthermore, this data is for my dissertation, meaning only a select few lecturers will be viewing it.

If you are happy to consent to me using some of your posts from July 2014 within my analysis please reply to this message or e mail me directly at b.lawer@ucs.ac.uk by 28th August 2014. Furthermore, if you would like to ask any question I am more than happy to answer them.

Thank you for your time.

Barbara Lawer

5. If you are suspicious of a person in this teen chat room, please send an email to mbhutten@gmail.com. We can perform a lot of commands to find out if a person is lying or if they who they say they are. Never be embarrassed to report a complaint …even if it's just a hunch, it's better to report it.
6. Inappropriate nicknames or conversation will NOT be tolerated. You will be banned if you do so.
7. It is very important when chatting online to not give out personal information. We protect our teen chat room well, but we cannot be around at all times. We take a different approach than regular teen chat sites. We think it's important to educate our users on spotting the predators and abusers so you can take the information with you to other teen chat sites.
8. No phone numbers, emails or instant messaging IDs are allowed to be posted in public.
9. Please be careful in this teen chat room and understand, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Let your common sense guide you to a safe but entertaining chat.
