Looking for Parents of Postsecondary Students with Autism to Participate in a Paid Research Study

As a parent and student, I am reaching out to you as a fellow parent to help me with a research study I am working on at the University of Illinois at Chicago in order to complete my PhD in Special Education. I am trying to learn how parents of current or former college students who have a formal diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD, including Asperger Syndrome, Autism, PDD-NOS) help or have helped their students with ASD while in college or university in the United States. To do this, I have created a survey and questionnaire that take about 15-25 minutes of time which you will confidentially complete at Qualtrics.com, a secure site provided by University of Illinois at Chicago. You will receive a $20 Starbucks gift card for your time after you complete the online study. If you are interested please click www.collegestudentparentsstudy.com in order to learn if you qualify for participating in the study.

Please share or email this information with a parent of a college/university student with ASD who may be interested in participating.
