1237Research about Siblings
- Jul 22, 2013Parents,
I am a researcher (and a sibling of an individual with autism) searching for families of a child with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD; e.g., Autism, Asperger's, Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified) and at least one fully biologically related typically-developing sibling to participate in a research study as part of my dissertation project. The purpose of the study is to
examine overall family functioning and coping.
Eligible families must have a child with an ASD between the ages of 3 and 17 and a typically-developing sibling between the ages of 11 and 17.
Participation simply requires that both the parent and the typically-developing sibling complete on-line questionnaires about themselves. Thus, completion of questionnaires can occur from home and at any time that is convenient. Also, participants will be entered for a chance to win 1 of 10 $30 gift cards to a national retailer. Interested participants should contact Ted at tedtomeny@....
