      Carer’s of adult with autism ideally living around the Gloucestershire areaI would like to ask for your help. I’m looking for people that care for an adult (18+) with autism to help me with my psychology dissertation. This can include parents, sibling or grandparents or any other non-professional carers. The topic of interest is the experiences that you go through as a carer of an adult with a development condition / learning disability and your thoughts and feeling about life. As this seems to be an area where research has been lacking in comparison to child and their parents and early diagnoses, this research wants to address this matter. You would need to take part in an interview lasting between 1 – 1 ½ hours at the University of Gloucestershire, Francis Close Hall campus in Cheltenham. The interview will consists of 8 questions. The questions can be given to you a week in advance, so you can have a think about what sort of things you would wish to say and to also make any amendments that you feel fit. Questions include such things as: Tell me what caring responsibilities you have? Are you able to get much spare time – what do you do to relax?The interviews will need to take part before the 23rd of November, this is owing to deadlines. However, later date arrangements can be made if needed. If for any reason you are unable to travel put would like to participant, then the interview can take place via the use of telephone or the internet, e.g. msn chat. Even thou its specified Gloucestershire area, it is not binding, if you live outside this area and would like to participate then you are more than welcome, if you are able to travel to Gloucestershire then great, but if not phone or internet interviews will also be available to you. I would like to stress that everything will be treated with the upmost confidence and anonymity will be assured. Pseudonyms will be used to protect your identity and all transcripts will be handled in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1988. I would be more then help to discuss an issues or concerns that you may have, before you commit to anything and also any questions that arise throughout. All contact information is given below. Your help is truly needed and would be tremulously welcomed. This also gives you the opportunity to get your thoughts and feeling known. I look forward to hearing from you 🙂Kind RegardsHelen WrightUniversity email address: s1012346@connect.glos.ac.uk
