Additional Information:

My name is Sasha Shuman and I am a counseling psychology doctorate student at Argosy University in San Diego. I am collecting data for my doctoral dissertation. My topic is studying the relationship between fathers and their child diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. My interest in research on fathers and autism is a result of family members diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, working with children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, and noticing there is a lack of research focusing on fathers. By filling out the on-line survey that takes about 15 minutes to complete, you can contribute to the research of autism.
