Call for Participants: Seeking Caregivers to Participate in Research
In order to learn more about caregiver-child interactions during everyday activities and routines, Clarissa Wade, a doctoral student at George Mason University, is seeking caregivers to participate in a research study in the comfort of their home.
Here are some details:
Who: We need caregivers currently interacting with children ages 0-8 who have an identified disability, social emotional delay and/or who exhibit challenging behavior. Caregivers may include parents, family members, or legal guardians.
What: Research activities will include the following.
Recording 10-20 minute interactions with your child during typical routines and activities throughout the day using an iPhone, iPad, or other smartphone/tablet device.
Uploading these recordings to a secure cloud storage system each week.
Participating in an individual interview lasting approximately one hour.
Why: To help inform researchers and professional development providers about practices used by caregivers to respond to challenging behaviors and therefore guide the development of caregiver coaching.
Caregivers who participate will receive a $20 gift card.
Caregivers will also be invited to participate in caregiver coaching in the future.
