Help wanted for research project

One of our former students, Rose Alexander, is currently undertaking a research project as part of her Psychology master's degree and she is asking for help from parents in the form of a questionnaire. 

The questionnaire has been developed at the university as part of a project looking at the differences and similarities across certain characteristics and behaviours in children and young people with autism.  Responses have already been collected from parents and carers of children with autism however, they are now extending the research and need parents and carers of children who do not have an autism spectrum condition to also complete the questionnaire. 

The responses from questionnaires completed will enable normative data regarding neurotypical children to be compared against data obtained about autistic children. Parents or primary care givers of children aged from 4 to 15 years can take part.  Participants will be asked a series of questions about their child.  If they have more than one child, parents/carers can complete the questionnaire again for further children.
