What are the goals of the study?
The goal of this research study is to develop an online questionnaire about what youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) eat and how it impacts their daily lives.
What will happen during the visit or online?
Youth (7-16 years) and their parent will complete a questionnaire about food and eating habits online. Parents will complete an additional child background and medical history questionnaire online. Participants will be paid for their time with an Amazon online gift card.
How will this help families?
There is a very limited number of reliable tools that can be used to assess quality of life in autistic people. This issue limits our ability to accurately assess and track client needs, review progress, set priorities, and evaluate service appropriateness and effectiveness. To address this problem, researchers at CAR work on developing surveys and measures for autistic individuals of different ages.
