    Default Parents of young children aged between 2 and 12 years needed for psychology study

    Hi everyone,
    I would like to introduce myself as Whitney Moe, a Postgraduate Diploma of Psychology student from Swinburne University of Technology.

    In collaboration with the Parenting Research Centre in East Melbourne and Swinburne Baby Lab, and under the supervision of Dr Katie Wood, the co-supervision of Dr Jordy Kaufman and associate investigator Dr Rebecca Giallo, we are conducting a research project exploring parental perceptions about touch screen device use in children.

    We are comparing parents of children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (aged 2-12 years) and parents of typically developing children (aged 2-12 years). In particular, we are interested in parent’s views regarding their own touch screen device use, their child’s touch screen device use and parent well being. We are asking mothers and fathers to participate in our research. We hope that the results of our study will provide families with important information and highlight an area that needs to be targeted for intervention and resource allocation.

    To participate in this study you must:
    - Be over 18 years of age

    - Your child must be either be TYPICALLY DEVELOPING or have a diagnosis of an AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER (Autism, Asperger’s Disorder or Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Not Otherwise Specified), from a health professional

    - Your child must be between the ages of 2 and 12 years old

    All you need to do is complete a 30 minute questionnaire which can be accessed:

    - Online: http://opinio.online.swin.edu.au/s?s=14109


    - By emailing the supervisor, Dr Katie Wood, cwood@swin.edu.au to receive a paper version of the questionnaire or contacting her by phone on (03) 9214 4627.

    Please feel free to pass the survey along to family or friends you know that fit the criteria.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me on wmoe@swin.edu.au, or my supervisor, Dr Katie Wood, on cwood@swin.edu.au should you require any further information.

    Thank you for your participation it is greatly appreciated!
