Lynn Walsh is a final year BA Psychology Major student in Dublin City University, and is conducting a research study which will examine perceived stress levels in parents of children diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. The aim of the study is to identify if a parent’s perceived stress level increases as the severity of the child’s diagnosis increases.
Lynn is seeking participants residing in the Republic of Ireland who are parent to a child/children who have been diagnosed with ASD. Participation in this research involves completing an online survey which will take 5-10 minutes to complete.
