Parents And Caregivers: We Need Your Input!

Posted on

Dear Parents, Caregivers and readers of Beyond Autism Awareness, please take a very brief (5-10min) survey about your views regarding your child’s Autism diagnosis, how it has impacted you and some of the methods you employ to cope.  This is a blind survey but does include a demographic section; feel free to modify dates, etc as you wish.  Understanding the impact that Autism has on you as a parent or caregiver is valuable and needs to be quantified.  Thank you in advance -Ed


Scott Brown is in his senior year at SUNY Purchase studying Psychology. His area of interest is Autism and for his senior project he created a survey along with his faculty mentor (see description below). If you have a child diagnosed with Autism, Asperger’s, PDD-NOS, or another diagnosis on the Autism Spectrum, would you please take the time to fill out this survey.  Scott hopes to present his findings at a senior presentation in addition to graduating with his Bachelor’s degree on May 16!  Please forward to any other parents, guardians or caregivers you may know that would be willing to participate.   It is much appreciated.

The following link is for a research study investigating Coping Strategies and Advocacy in parents of children with Autism.  The survey will take about 10 minutes and it is our hope that the data will contribute to the research on Adaptive Coping Strategies for parents of children with Autism. Upon completion of the survey, please feel free to forward the link to any other parent who may be willing to fill out the survey.  Thank you for your participation.
