Please read below information about research that parents can participate in –
“Claire McGonagle, a Psychologist in Clinical Training is inviting parents to take part in a study conducted by Trinity College Dublin. They are investigating stress in children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It appears that individuals with ASD are more vulnerable to experiencing stress. However, there is limited research examining the area of stress and coping in children with ASD. Thus, this study aims to examine the relationship between individual factors including ASD severity, adaptive functioning, sensory processing, I.Q. and environmental stressors specific to ASD e.g changes in routine. They are also looking at how children cope with stress and the relationship with anxiety. This will add to both the literature base and have clinical implications in terms of service development.
