Challenges Parents Face in Applying Behavioural Interventions

Attention: Parents of Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

As part of my Masters of Clinical Psychology I am completing a research thesis investigating the challenges parents face in applying behavioural intervention strategies. I learnt through my previous work in early intervention programs that it is not always easy at times!

The study aims to help identify what behavioural intervention strategies parents find most difficult to apply and why. This information may help clinicians work more effectively with both parents and their children in managing challenges in following behavioural interventions. The study is an online survey. It is confidential and completely voluntary, and takes no more than 20-30 minutes to complete.

To be eligible for the study, participants must be a parent or caregiver of a child with an Austism Spectrum Disorder, and have been given behavioural intervention strategies to follow (e.g. as part of an early intervention program, from a psychologist).

If you are interested in participating in this important research, the link to complete the survey is:

I appreciate how limited your time is and thank you kindly to those who consider participating in this study. Your help is very much appreciated and beneficial.

Kind regards,
