I'm a gradaute level psychology student researching the experiences of Coping and Self-care of moms who have a child with autism.
I want to better understand the coping and self-care strategies used by mothers of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
I'm looking for mothers, who have at least one child diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, who was diagnosed for at least one year. The child must be 11 years old or less.
Mothers will share her experience on her journey to cope and self-care in a 1 ½ hour individual interview.
A 10 minute initial phone screening will be completed to determine eligibility.
The interview would consist of 3 parts: (1) a life review, (2) sharing of 3 – 5 specific stressful events during the last two weeks, and (3) concepts of self-care as it applies to your life.
Mothers will be requested to fill out a demographic survey at the end of the interview.
If your interested, please contact me at [email protected] for more information.
