Examining the Needs of Culturally Diverse Families With Autism

January 17, 2024

Rider University invites families who identify with a diverse ethnic or cultural group and care for a child on the autism spectrum to participate in a research study.

This community-based study will examine the needs of families.

Family members are invited to complete a survey and participate in focus groups if they are:

  • Over the age of 18
  • Caregiver of minor on the autism spectrum
  • Identify with a cultural minority and speak a language other than English

Upon completion of the study, participants will be provided with a summary of findings and invited to participate in discussions to help develop community-specific action plans.

For more information, contact Dr. Chrystina Dolyniuk, Department of Psychology, Rider University at cdolyniuk@rider.edu.
