JeannaSJeannaS Member Posts: 1 Listener


My name's Jeanna Song and I'm recruiting parents and professionals for my Master dissertation research at Queen's University-Belfast in Northern Ireland.

The study is to explore the behavioral differences between boys and girls and hopefully to gain a better understanding of the 4:1 diagnostic gap between the two genders.

The main part of the study include a questionnaire (takes 20-30 minutes) on a child under your care (boys and girls under 18, with a diagnosis or is under investigation for ASD). There is an OPTIONAL interview for carers of girls, which you will have the opportunity to indicate interest to receive more information about at the end of the questionnaire.

Please use links below (Survey Monkey web pages) to access the information page, consent and questionnaires.
