Researchers at Montclair State University are looking for parents from racial/ethnic minority groups born within or outside of the United States of individuals with Autism Spectrum
Disorder (ASD) (between the ages of 3 to 21), residing in the United States to participate in an online research study that seeks to identify the barriers and unique stressors experienced
by families from ethnic and racial minority groups from navigating the process of diagnosis to accessing appropriate services for individuals with ASD. Participating parents will receive a $20.00 gift card for completing this study

There is a need for inclusion of underrepresented minorities in research in order to inform policy making and scientific practice, therefore, this project will fill an important gap by including South Asian and Middle-Eastern and North African (MENA) caregivers/parents (two ethnoracial groups whose population is rapidly increasing in the United States) with a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder between the ages of 3-21 living in the United States to assess needs, trends in service utilization, and barriers to treatment access. Your contribution will go a long way in furthering this effort!

Of note, even though we are recruiting from South Asian and MENA groups in the first phase of recruitment, we hope to expand our sample to include other minority groups as well in the future. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you are interested and eligible for the future phase of this project!
