STUDY Parents Wanted- Reasons for Children’s Behaviors Study

Date: December 31, 2019

Reasons for Children’s Behaviors Study

Principal Investigator: Christie Petrenko

This research study is looking to include parents of children with FASD.  “The research study is being conducted by Christie Petrenko, Ph.D. from Mt. Hope Family Center, University of Rochester. The purpose of this study is to understand the various reasons for children’s behaviors and how parents think about them.”

If you decide to take part in this study, you will be asked to complete a survey that will take about 30-35 minutes to complete. The survey will ask questions about common causes of children’s behavior and how much they apply to your child. There will also be questions about parenting strategies and your experience as a parent. A few questions about family background are included to understand how children’s behavior varies across families.

If you have more than one child between the ages of 3 and 16, please take the survey one time, thinking of one child. We are interested in reasons for all children’s behavior, but especially that of children with disabilities. Therefore, if you have a child with a disability between the age of 3 and 16, please take the survey with that child in mind. If you do not have a child with a disability, think of any child you wish. Please only take the survey one time.

You are welcome to forward the survey link to others who may be eligible and interested.
