Msc. Project. ASD families. Aged 6-12 years old.
My name is Caroline Watson, I am in my final year studying a masters in psychology at London South bank university. My dissertation asks the following question:
Can Autism specific smartphone applications used within a domestic setting help reduce social anxiety in high functioning and neurodiverse children aged 6-12?
I am looking for families who may benefit from being part of this anonymous 4 week home based study. I will not need to be present within the home during the 4 week study period. You and your child will be placed in one of two groups, and will be asked to interact with a chosen ASD product, either an app or a comic book with activities.
To evalute each group intervention you will be asked to complete a questionnaire at the start of the 4 weeks and again at the end. Your child's teacher will also be asked to complete a 20 min online questionnaire. I would like to start the study at the start of June 2019 ending before the school summer holidays in July 2019.
If you or anyone you know may be interested in finding out more please contact Caroline on: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your time.
