Research Study on Siblings of Youth with ASD Announced

Are you the mother of a child or teen with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)? Do you also have at least one other child or teen who does not have an ASD?

The Stony Brook University Social Competence & Treatment Lab is conducting a research study on how various aspects of family life may affect kids and teens who have a brother or sister with an ASD. Stony Brook is currently seeking mothers to volunteer to complete an online survey.

The study might be right for you if:

  • You are the biological mother of one child or teen age 6 to 17 who has an ASD and at least one typically developing child or teen age 6 to 17
  • You and your children live in the same house
  • Your children do not have any chronic medical illnesses

The potential benefits of the study are:

  • The results may help us learn about the unique experiences, needs and successes of siblings of children with autism
  • You will be entered into a raffle with a 1 in 10 chance of winning a $200 Amazon gift card.
