Research project for siblings of children with autism (TUKS Project)

Published

Joy Tsai, a PhD student at the University of Edinburgh, with a particular interest in autism spectrum disorders, is looking for parents and siblings of people with ASD/ Asperger Syndrome to participate in a new research project called TUKS (Taiwan – United Kingdom Siblings project). The project focuses on the experiences of siblings of people with autism. The research will involve you – the parent – and your child without autism. Siblings (brothers or sisters) who are aged 9 – 17 years and who don’t have an autism diagnosis are welcome to participate. The research will only involve post and e-mail contact and there are no home visits or clinic appointments. Your child with autism will not take part directly.
