Dis/Abled Parents' Experience of the IEP Process

This study, first of its kind, will investigate the experience of parents with disabilities as they participate in the IEP process for their child or children. It is being conducted by two independent researchers who have graduate level degrees but are not currently connected with any University. They are themselves disabled parents who have participated in the IEP process for at least one child.

Your participation in this research study is completely voluntary. You must be over the age of 18 years, have a disability, either disclosed or not disclosed to school personnel, and have at least one child who has had or currently has an IEP in school.

How Diet Affects Autism

I am a student doing a research study on dietary intervention for children with autism and am wondering if you would be willing to participate in taking a survey for me. The survey is for parents or primary caregivers of a child who has been diagnosed with autism, and will have questions regarding certain diets you may have tried and how certain foods have/have not affected your child. All of your information will be kept confidential.

The survey should take about 15-20min.I understand this may seem long, but if you do have time I would greatly appreciate your input. After you complete it you will have the option to enter your email and be entered in a drawing to win a $75 spafinder gift card!

My niece is on the spectrum which is what inspired this research topic for me. It has made such an impact on me already and I truly believe I have found my calling.

Please consider taking this at your earliest convenience. All surveys must be completed by October 31 in order to participate.

Here is the link, and please share with as many parents as you can!
