Autism research on parenting, happiness and Autism

I’m a mum of a child with Autism working towards my Master’s degree in Autism at the University of Strathclyde and I designed a simple online questionnaire as a part of my dissertation.

I would like to invite parents/guardians to share anonymously their experiences of how they see their child’s happiness expressed. If you are interested, please contact me on my student email: [email protected]

Thank you

    Research Study Advert

    “I just want my child to be happy”. An exploration of parental understanding of happiness of their autistic child.

     Volunteers Needed

    For a research study to explore how parents see happiness in their autistic child

    Are you a parent who:

    • Has a child with a diagnosis of Autism?
    • Is interested in sharing a photo representing your child’s happiness?
    • Is interested in sharing how you see and promote your child’s happiness and how you advocate it to others?


    If you have answered ‘yes’ to all of these questions you may want to take part in this research study.

    You will be asked to complete a simple online questionnaire, which will take approximately 30 minutes. This questionnaire will focus on how you see happiness in your child and we will ask you to upland a photograph that represents happiness in/for your child. If you are interested in participating in this study, please, contact me via e-mail for further information.
