Parents/caregivers required for research into non-compliance behaviour

Postby KatherineGradyQUB » Fri May 06, 2016 8:38 am

Hello everyone!
I'm a postgraduate student at Queen's University Belfast and I'm running a project based around "non-compliance behaviour" in children with ASD.

Here's a video with more information!

We know that almost all children show non-compliance behaviours, but some children with ASD seem to struggle especially with these sorts of behaviours. Surprisingly little research has been carried out on why some children particularly struggle with non-compliance. We aim to find out more about the factors that can influence the non-compliant behaviour children show so that we can start to develop bespoke helping strategies specifically designed for these behaviours.

If you are a caregiver of a child aged 5-15 years old who frequently shows non-compliance behaviour across different settings, and you feel the behaviour may be having a negative impact on the child and/or on the family, we want to hear from you! We would like you to take part in an interview over the phone to talk about the behaviour. Everyone who takes part will receive a feedback report about what we have found when this initial study is finished and we will update any families who wish with information about our ongoing progress in this project and future participation opportunities.

If this sounds like something you're interested in, please get in touch: contact me on, 07926076790 or post below how you'd like us to get in touch with you.

Thanks for reading!
