Hello everyone! I am a professor of nursing. I am working with a nursing student on a survey study of parents of ASD youth ages 13-19. The purpose is to discover how nurses can do better in supporting families and communicating with both caregivers/parents and teens. We are not part of and do not represent the company, views, or opinions of Asperger Experts but do have permission to post this study. Here is a direct QR code for the study. We would very much appreciate your time. And here is the text of our recruitment letter: Hello, Recognizing personal experiences to shape individualized care is important.
