Research Study Description

I am studying the effectiveness of an 8-week, Youtube-delivered nutrition education program among parents of children with autism and weight issues (overweight/obesity). Parents will be watching 2 videos (less than 4 mins each) per week and answering surveys at Week 1, Week 4 and week 8. Surveys are easy, takes less then 3 minutes to complete. This is a randomized research study.

I am looking for parents who have children between the ages of 6-11 years and are overweight or obese. This study was approved by the IRB at TWU and is funded by the TWU Woodcock Institute. An incentive will be given to the participants for their time.
