Volunteers Needed for ASD Current Trends Research

From Amber Yaholkoski, B.A., M.A. Student (Clinical Psychology)- University of Manitoba, Department of Psychology:

We are conducting a research study to collect information about the current trends in screening and assessment of school-aged children (ages 4-21) for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) used by clinicians in Canada.

We need your help to describe clinical practice with regards to ASDs in Canada, including the challenges and barriers in the screening and assessment process.

We invite clinicians involved in screening, assessment, or diagnosis of ASDs in school-aged children to compete a short (15-30 minute) online survey that you can access here:

Your help is extremely valuable in terms of informing training or professional development needs for clinicians in Canada, which ultimately benefits children with ASDs and their families seeking access to funding, intervention, and understanding of their child’s difficulties.

As a thank you for participation, you will be given the option to enter a draw to win a $50 Amazon eGift Card. Additional information will be provided upon completion of the survey.

This project is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. This research has been approved by the Psychology/Sociology Research Ethics Board. Please contact us if you have questions.
