Research Study

Participants Needed for Research Study with Parents of a child recently diagnosed with Autism

If you are a parent, guardian, or primary caretaker of a child diagnosed with autism within the last 12 months please consider participating in this study.

My name is Ellen Mattingly, M.S., CCC-SLP, and I am a SLP-D doctoral candidate at Nova Southeastern University as well as a practicing Speech Language Pathologist who is the owner of an outpatient therapy practice in West Palm Beach, Florida. I am requesting you take part in an online survey, Exploring Practices of Diagnosing Autism – Revised. The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete.

This research will provide more current information about the average age of children at the time of their formal Autism diagnosis and factors that may delay the Autism diagnostic process.

The purpose of this research is to gather the information that could assist with the early diagnosis of Autism which leads to early intervention promoting better outcomes.

Further information is provided prior to beginning the survey if you click on the following link:
