Research Request Behavioural and emotional traits in mothers of children with autism

Invitation to participate in research: Behavioural and emotional traits in mothers of children with autism spectrum disorder

From University of Birmingham and University College London:

A new research project is a collaboration between the Cerebra Centre for Neurodevelopmental Disorders at the University of Birmingham and University College London. Your personal details will not be made known to us unless you decide to take part in the project outlined below.

About the research project:
In this project we aim to further our understanding of behavioural and emotional traits in mothers of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and how these might impact on experiences of caring for a child with a neurodevelopmental disorder.

What will participation involve?
We are inviting mothers of children with autism, who are under fifty years old, to complete an online questionnaire which will ask you to rate your strengths and weaknesses in a range of everyday scenarios, as well as your preferences, interests and reasoning skills. We will also ask you about your experiences of caring for your child.
