Parent Perceptions in Developmental Disabilities

October 1, 2022 - March 31, 2023

Interested parents should know that we would like them to have the opportunity to share their story of being a parent to an autistic child. The five-minute Zoom interview is a quick interview to give parents the chance to share their experiences and participate in research. We are enrolling families with autism and other disabilities in the study.

What are the goals of the study?

The study goals are to learn about parents and families of children with autism and other disabilities to better understand their experiences as parents and caregivers and to understand the relationships they have with their children.

What will happen during the visit or online?

Parents will complete an online consent form, questionnaire, and five-minute Zoom interview.

How will this help families?

The research may ultimately lead to a better understanding of how to help families affected by autism and other disabilities to thrive and cope as parents and caregivers.

Eligibility Criteria

Parents of children with autism ages 13 to 45 years old.
