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.

  1. 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.

  2. Uploading these recordings to a secure cloud storage system each week.

  3. 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.

  1. Caregivers who participate will receive a $20 gift card.

  2. Caregivers will also be invited to participate in caregiver coaching in the future.

How: By clicking on this link to take the screener to see if you're eligible AND to provide consent: Caregivers providing consent and meeting inclusion criteria will be sent an email within 48 hours to initiate the first step of the research study.

Where: In the home setting! Even the interview can be completed online at caregivers’ convenience.
