We want to find out about your understanding of autism (ASD) in relation to your child​ 

We are interested in your understanding of the individual characteristics of your child with autism (ASD).

Exploring parental understanding of autism in relation to the unique strengths and abilities of their children, will help us develop the means to individualized intervention strategies that will inform parents’ decisions and improve ways in which they can manage the challenging behaviors seen in autism and have a good quality of life. 

How can you get involved in this project?
