If you have a research study that is relevant to what we do and which may be appropriate for us to publicise on our website, please send an email to the Research Requests Co-ordinator with a copy of the research project that you want publicised through us, together with a short summary of the research project and a copy of the ethics approval associated with the research.  We will consider your request and respond to you as soon as possible.

RMIT Autism Sibling Study

Do you have a 13-14 year old?

We’d love you to get involved in our

Autism Sibs Study!

How can we foster the well-being of sibs?

Research Study by: Laura Green & Susana Gavidia-Payne

RMIT University

This study will assist Laura to:

      Understand and identify the concerns of siblings

      Explore factors affecting the adjustment of siblings

      Track the experience of sibs across their lifespan

This study is part of a PhD project investigating the quality of life and adjustment of siblings of individuals with autism. With the results of the data that we collect from you, sibling support programs will be able to be developed.

If you have a child with autism 3-25 years of age who has a typically developing sibling who is 13-14 years old, we would be very grateful if you participate in this study. It involves a simple questionnaire for yourself and your teen to complete which should take you approximately one hour each. This questionnaire will ask questions about your child’s satisfaction with life, the accommodations the family makes, and emotional and physical responses to life stress.

Four families will also win $50 iTunes vouchers; by agreeing to participate in the study you are entering this raffle!

Finally, develop strategies for ensuring the well-being of sibs. 

You can agree to participate via email: s3267184@student.rmit.edu.au or phone: 0400 679 353

*Laura Green is a registered psychologist with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency and a PhD candidate at RMIT University, Bundoora.
