AUTISM AND DADS RESEARCH PROJECT -PARTICIPANTS NEEDED!

I am a research student from the University of York, my name is Jo. I live in Liverpool.

I am carrying out research with fathers who have sons and daughters of all ages with autism. I am inviting dads/ male caregivers in the north west area to take part in interviews to help with this study.

My research focuses on the things that fathers do rather than the things that they don’t do, as well as any difficulties dads might experience. Modern family life often involves mothers and fathers taking turns to work and care. You may be a single father, or you might be an older father with adult offspring. You may be from a minority ethnic background, or a stepfather or grandad. Whatever your family situation, I would love to hear from you.

This research also hopes to show that people with autism face some challenges but are active individuals in their own right, who have relationships, interests, likes and dislikes like anybody else.

For further details please email me on jh1625@york.ac.uk in confidence and I will send you information about what is involved.

This study has had full ethical approval, and participation is voluntary and confidential
