Thank you for participating in my study. My name is Kevin Carroll. I am a Science Research student at Yorktown High School in Yorktown Heights, NY.

This survey is approximately 10 pages long and should take 10-15 minutes to complete.

A few important notes before you start:
-Once you start the survey, please complete it in one sitting because your responses will not be saved if you leave the website.

-An asterisk * indicates that the question must be answered to continue with the survey.

-The insight gained from this survey will be used in the development of a new model of autism support groups and parental training workshops.The purpose of this study is to explore what aspects of caring for a child with autism are most stressful, explore strategies for dealing with stress, and explore how support groups address certain issues in parenting.

-If you have more than one child with autism, please complete this survey based on your child with the most severe symptoms.
-If you'd like to help spread the word about this survey, you can send the link to the survey to another parent of a child with autism. I would greatly appreciate every response I can get.

-Your responses will be kept completely confidential. If you would like to know the group-level results of this survey, please send a separate email to kevin.carroll@yorktown.org with "Autism Survey Results" as the subject. I will be happy to share my results with anyone who would like to know. (As the survey is anonymous, result requests written in the comment boxes will not be answered.)
