Parents & Caregivers Urged to Complete Updated ARI E-2 Survey to Identify Autism Subtypes
Who: Chief Investigator Steve M. Edelson, Ph.D., Executive Director, Autism Research Institute.
What: Comprehensive, consent-based online survey. The survey is lengthy and may take up to two hours to complete - you can start the survey and then save it, and return and complete it another time. The survey is online at: www.AutismResearchSurvey.com.
Purpose: (1) To corroborate previous research on subtyping autism and (2) to determine, based on parent responses, possible underlying causes and the effectiveness of various interventions in relation to each subtype.
Compensation: Participants who complete the entire survey will receive a complimentary one-year subscription to ARI's science newsletter, the Autism Research Review International.
In addition, participants will be entered in a contest to win an Apple iPad. Note: one entry per individual with ASD.
Once the data has been collected and analyzed, we will send a summary report to all of the participants. If we do replicate our previous findings, we will also inform each participant to which subgroup their son or daughter belongs to.
Where: International - this study is open to participants worldwide.
When:Data collection is ongoing, and the next iPad drawing will take place on July 31, 2014. The winner of the drawing will not be announced publicly.
