Research Projects – Participants Needed

Our friends at the Australian Catholic University (ACU) are looking for parents of autistic students in years 10, 11 or 12 to participate in a research project.

The research project investigates the impact of COVID-19 Victorian school closures on autistic secondary school students, and the role of parents in supporting these students.

Researchers would particularly like to understand the challenges and triumphs for parents in supporting their autistic child’s learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The research is for parents of autistic students in the Melbourne Metro area.

Parents who wish to participate will be involved in a 30 – 45 minute interview that will be conducted online and receive a $20 e-voucher for participation.
