Hi there,

I am looking for any parents who could possible help in completing the questionnaire below. I have a 15 year old son with an ASD disgnosis and am currently studying for an access course in social sciences, to enable me to study at university for an occupational therapist degree, specialising in children with a ASD or PDD diagnosis. My dissertation is about the benefits of occupational therapy and how widely available it is used. If you could take the time to fill this in i would really appreciate this....Kind Regards Michelle
