    Parents, we would love to hear from you! I am a Masters student in the Abnormal and Clinical Psychology program at Swansea University, Wales. Joanna Davies, a teacher at Ysgol Hendrefelin, Wales, and PhD student, and I need your help. This research aims to explore the thoughts and feelings of parents about parenting. Mothers or fathers (birth or foster/adoptive) we kindly ask you to take part in our research. This would involve completing an anonymous online survey which should take approximately 45 minutes. We would really appreciate your participation!Unfortunately, there is little research that has explored the thoughts and feelings of parents in general and less that has explored the thoughts and feelings of parents of children with an autism spectrum condition (ASC) in particular, even though it can have a large impact on a parent's family and lives. We hope that the findings will help us understand the feelings and problems that parents might face when caring for a child. This may help us provide better support to parents and families in general and to parents and families with children with ASC in particular.We should point out that as some of these questions deal with feelings and sensitive issues, some people may find them upsetting.If you are interested in taking part, please follow the link below: feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like any further information: Many thanks for taking the time to read this. The information you provide will make an important contribution to an area of research that is currently underexplored. We will happily provide any parent who participates in this research with a copy of the results at the end of the study. Kind Regards, Laura Glinn

    Oh two more things: If a "something went wrong" message pops up after you click on the link, please just click on the 'follow the link" button. This will take you to the online survey. I understand that many parents might not have 45 minutes spare at once to complete a survey. This is okay. If you have a couple of spare 10 minutes to complete the survey in several stages that would be fantastic! There is no time-out so you can leave the survey open in your browser and come back to it. Alternatively, you can enter in the same name/ID and click "Next" until you reach the same point you left off - please don't answer the same questions twice. Thank you!! 🙂Laura
