Christia Goodman has asked us to help her find people to participate in a short online survey.

Goodman told us “I am a doctoral psychology student at St. John’s University. I am looking for parents of children with Autism or a developmental disability ages 3 to 18 to participate in research for my dissertation study.  I volunteer for an organization called Autism Friendly Spaces that transforms spaces (plays/shows at the theater, restaurants, museums) to accommodate individuals with autism: My research is seeking to better understand community participation in families of children with Autism and developmental disabilities, specifically, what promotes and prevents families of children with ASD and DD from participating in the community. The study requires participants to complete a short 10-15 minute online survey. After completing the survey, participants will get a chance to enter a raffle to win a $50 gift card!

I am a clinician that works with families of children with autism and I am hoping to find out how to improve quality of life for these families by learning more about how these families participate in the community.”

You can take the survey here.
