I am personally inviting you to participate in my online survey to see if families who have a person with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) would have been interested in receiving quantitative details along with their observational diagnosis.
You’re here to take a survey that will help to make informed decisions on the policies of how a person is diagnosed with Autism. But before we can get going, we’ll have to cover some “house rules”. The house rules are:
Your participation in this survey is voluntary. You are free to decline to answer any particular question you do not wish to answer for any reason.
Your responses may help us learn more about the way your family member was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and could help revolutionize the way science can be applied with the diagnosis. You will be a trendsetter!
You may find some of the questions to be sensitive and take you back to an emotional time since receiving a diagnosis.
Please know that as a mother who has gone through receiving a diagnosis for her child, I understand. This is the very reason I am conducting this survey. And, I thank you, in advance, for helping to shake up the earth and pave the way for a more thought-provoking and data-driven diagnostic method.
Your survey answers will be captured using Google Forms where data will be stored in a password protected electronic format. No one will be able to identify you or your answers, and no one will know whether or not you participated in the study.
However, should you elect to identify yourself, you may be selected to participate with other parents and help to influence groundbreaking diagnosis methods in the future.
By participating in the survey, you agree to the following:
