Research Study Description

The study we are currently running is called The moderating effect of social support: Experiences of affiliate stigma and depressive symptoms in caregivers of autistic children. We are interested in how experienced stigma and social support affect the mood of caregivers of children with autism. We are looking for the primary caregiver of autistic children between the ages of one and eighteen who live at home. The primary caregiver would be asked to complete five short questionnaires which would take about 45-60 minutes. For your participation, you will receive a $10 gift card from Amazon.
