Hello Everyone,Thank you again to everyone who has helped me with my research so far.This is an appeal for more help. I am a post-graduate health psychologist focuing my research on addressing this issue of diagnosis.No studies have looked at the effect of non-diagnosis on the parents. I want to compare stress, coping and health related quality of life of Mums who have a diagnosis for their child and those who do not yet have a diagnosis for their child. I am hoping to publish the findings to further highlight the need for better support for the children and their families during the diagnosis process.If you are raising a child whom you believe has high functioning autism or Asperger’s could you spare 20 minutes or so to fill in my questionniare? I am using well-used questionnaires to measure parental stress, coping methods and quality of life, some seem quite long but usually it will take no more than 15 minutes to finish the whole survey.This is the link to my questionnaire: http://uwepsych.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_0TmQAlGJGpdRv9O I can be PM'd or my email address is ashlee2.mulimba@uwe.ac.uk if you have any comments, suggestion or help!Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and thank you again if you are taking part!Best wishes,Ashlee Mulimba
