Deborah Logan, a doctoral student in Clemson University’s recreational therapy program, and
Dr. Brandi Crowe, Assistant Professor in the Recreational Therapy at Clemson University and
the Principal Investigator are currently recruiting rural-dwelling families with teenagers with
autism to participate in a research study titled: Virtually Coached Nature-Based Activities for
Perceived Stress in Rural-Dwelling Families with a Teenager with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
WHO: Families in a rural area with a teenager (ages 13-18) with autism spectrum disorder living
at the home.
WHAT: An eight-week nature-based activities (e.g., nature walk, scavenger hunt) program that
will be implemented with the whole family, for the purpose of decreasing perceived stress.
Parents/guardians will receive virtual coaching from a recreational therapist, and learn how to
lead the nature-based activities with their family.
HOW LONG: 30-minute nature-based activity sessions, once-a-week, for eight weeks
WHERE: An outdoor location at or near the family’s house (e.g., backyard, local park).
If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about the study and/or in participating
in the study, please contact Deborah Logan at email@example.com or 828-227-2481.
