Abstract:Motivation is a crucial factor in successful work participation. Few studies explicitly adopt a specific theory to examine the motivational state of work participation in people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in Taiwan. The self-determination theory (SDT) stresses that external supports may facilitate the motivation stage shifting that leads to long-term behaviors changing. Understanding the current status of motivation and family support in the ASD population would reveal unfulfilled areas for intervention. We proposed a study designed around the SDT to examine the motivation stage, perceived family support, and effort of work participation in cognitively adults with ASD.
