Laura Czekirda of Northumberland University is conducting some research into parents of children with autism! Czekirda says “I am currently recruiting participants for my study which is for my dissertation. I am recruiting parents who have a child with autism 3-19 years old to assess the affect locus of control has on their health and well-being.
I am recruiting for my study which involves assessing the psychological and health correlates of locus of control, the feeling that you are in control of your life in parents of children with Autism or Down syndrome, and parents of typically developing children.
This study and all its procedures have been approved by the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences Ethics Committee at Northumbria University.
Please forward this to your friends. Your contribution to this extremely worthwhile project is gratefully received.”
If you have any questions about the study please use the comments box and we will ask Ms Czekirda to respond.
