An investigation of the relationship between child comorbid psychopathology and parental well-being.

Participant Information Sheet

 

The aim of the study is to investigate the relationship between co-occurring mental health issues in children with autism spectrum disorder and their parent’s well-being. We are interested in understanding the relationship between co-occurring emotional and behavioural problems in children with autism and their parent’s quality of life. We are recruiting parents with children with the diagnosis of autism and we will collect information on topics such as your child’s behaviour and your own well-being, such as quality of life, mental health and sleep quality. Even if your child does not have any co-occurring emotional or behavioural problems, you are still invited to take part as your information can help us understand more about the well-being of parents with children with autism.

Filling out the survey will take approximately 20-30 minutes, you can choose to stop answering the questions at any given time and resume later by clicking on ‘resume later’ at the top right corner. You can withdraw from the study any time and this will not affect you in any way.

I will be expected to present all related information to my academic supervisors, Dr. Arlene Mannion and Dr. Geraldine Leader. We aim to publish this research in an academic journal. Should you agree to have your child participate, I can send you the article when it is published. You or your child will not be identified in any publication. Your child’s identity will be kept completely confidential, and will not be shared with anyone else.
