Take This Opportunity To Speak Out Regarding Services We Want

My friend and colleague, Pam Wiley Ph.D. CCC-SLP  is working on all of our behalf to help our kids get the services they need and she wants your input. Please take a few moments to help Dr. Wiley help us, by completing the brief questionnaire below. 


Parent Survey: ASD Services Over Age 21
Dear Parent,

My name is Dr. Pamela Wiley and I am licensed speech-language pathologist and Fellow of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. I am conducting a research study to get the opinion of parents of young adult children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) regarding specific services available and needed after age 21.  Your opinion is important to me and I would like your input as we expand upon existing services and develop new programs to serve your young adults with ASD.

Included in this email is a link to Survey Monkey.  There you will find a survey that can be completed in ten minutes or less. All of your responses are anonymous and confidential and we will not be able to tie your responses to you. Your participation is completely voluntary and data will be kept for three years past the life of the study. 

Should you wish to withdraw from this study, you may do so at any time with no penalty to you and your answers will not be sent to us by Survey Monkey. There are no anticipated risks expected as a result of participation in this study. However, we would greatly appreciate it if you would agree to respond to the survey.

The initial results of this survey will be professionally presented at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association national conference.

Clicking on the link below provides your consent to participate in the survey and gives us permission to use your responses for our research study. 

Please complete by October 30, 2015. Thank you for your time.
