Call for ASD parents

march 7 2008


My name is Keli Blankenship and I am a graduate student at Spalding University.
I am currently working on my dissertation and am recruiting volunteers to participate in a research study examining parental stress, mood, and quality of life of parents raising children with autism spectrum disorders.

This research is under the supervision of Dr. Steve Katsikas, the department chair at Spalding University.

To participate, you must be the parent of a child diagnosed with Autistic Disorder, Asperger's Syndrome, or Pervasive Developmental Disorder – Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS) between the ages of 4 and 18.

Your participation will help us learn more about the unique challenges of raising a child with an autism spectrum disorder.
Additionally, we hope to determine whether there are any factors that may be related to positive coping (resiliency factors).

If you are interested in participating in the study, it is easy to complete through an online survey. You will be completely anonymous.
It should take approximately 30-45 minutes to complete.

To access the survey and participate in the study please click on the following link.

Questions about the study can be directed to me at kblank06@hotmail. com
or Dr. Steve Katsikas, skatsikas@spalding. edu.

You may email us to request a summary of the study's findings when the study is complete.Thank you for your time.Keli E. Blankenship, MSDoctoral CandidateSpalding University
