  3. A copy of your research ethics approval form.

CURRENT RESEARCH STUDIES

 

Participants needed! York University: Study exploring developmental disabilities and experiences with law enforcement/police.

Researchers at York University want to hear about your experiences with the police, your views regarding current police training on developmental disabilities (DDs), and what you think police officers should know about people with DDs. You can participate in this study even if you (OR your dependent/child) have not had any interaction with the police. The goal of this project is to collect information that will be used to create informed training materials for police & law enforcement professionals on how to better handle people with DDs. You are eligible to participate in this study if you are 18 years old, and either:

(1) have a DD and/or ID (this includes ASD, Autism, Pervasive developmental disorder, and anyone with an intellectual disability) or

(2) care for someone with a DD/ID (e.g., parents, caregivers).

The questionnaire takes approximately 45 minutes to complete, and can be completed either online or in-person. Upon completion of the survey, you will have the opportunity to participate in a raffle for a $50 gift card! Participants who would like to complete the survey in-person will be compensated with 2 TTC tokens. Results of this project, and any training material created from it, will be shared with participants. If you are interested in participating, please contact Alisha at salern0a@yorku.ca (please note: the 0 in this e-mail address is a zero).

NEW STUDY: Seeking parent input into experiences of support:

What you need, when you need it, and how it helps

To help fill in gaps in existing research, this study will focus on factors that may lead to social support for parents of individuals with ASD. This study is looking at the kind of supports parents need and the experiences of social support parents receive over time. Findings from this research will inform the ways policies and services make supports available to help families cope when needed.

For this study, parents are invited to complete an online questionnaire. This questionnaire takes about 30 minutes to complete. Parents will also be invited to complete shorter follow-up questionnaires 6 and 12 months later. Any parent of a school-aged child (age 5-18) with a diagnosis of an ASD, and living in Canada, is invited to participate.

Who can participate in this study?
Any parent of a school-aged child with a diagnosis of an Autism Spectrum Disorder, living in Canada. The person with ASD needs to currently be between 5 and 18 years of age. Only parents are needed to participate in this research.
What does participation involve?
Interested parents will complete an online questionnaire (a paper copy is also available). This questionnaire takes about 30 minutes to complete. Parents will also be invited to complete shorter follow-up questionnaires 6 and 12 months later. Participating parents will be entered in a raffle for $50 gift certificates, as thanks.
