Virtual Parent Groups for Parents of Children with Autism
I am conducting a study examining whether virtual parent groups for parents of children with autism and challenging or severe behavior are something parents are willing to participate in. The groups will target parental well-being and will consist of 6 virtual weekly sessions. After the completion of the virtual sessions, parents will receive two sessions of parent training at Rowan University to learn skills for managing their child's challenging or severe behavior.
Parents can participate if:
- They are at least 18 years old
- They have a child age 5-12 with autism who engages in severe or challenging behavior
- They speak English
- They have access to a device with audio and video capabilities.
- They can travel to Rowan University a total of 3 times (intake interview, 2 parent training sessions)
- They have not received extensive ABA-based parent training

Social Networking, Dating and Relationships
We want to learn more about how college students with and without Autism Spectrum Disorder meet friends, date, and who they go to when they need advice. Our research will inform the creation of better intervention methods for helping individuals meet new people, form, and maintain meaningful relationships.
