Invitation to Study for Parents of Children with ASD

Our partners in the VCU Genetics Department have asked us to share the invitation to this survey. Please share with others who may be interested. 

You are invited to participate in an online survey focusing on the usefulness of the knowledge gained from genetic testing for ASD. The purpose of this study is to determine the usefulness of the information provided through genetic testing in understanding the cause of ASD and the effects of the genetic testing results on management.

Any individual who is a parent and/or caregiver of a child with ASD and whose child has completed genetic testing is eligible to participate. 

The survey should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.  Participation is voluntary and you may stop participation at any time.  The survey is anonymous; your answers will not be associated with you in any way. 

To access the survey, which includes the study information sheet (informed consent), please follow the link below:

Thank you in advance for your time and participation. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact.
