Mother Study

mother study

For this mother study, we are currently recruiting:

  • Mothers of typically developing children
  • Mothers who have a child with fragile X syndrome
  • Mothers who have a child with autism
  • Women who have the FMR1 premutation (i.e., who are “carriers” of fragile X)

Participants are compensated $50 for their time. Please contact us by email or by phone at (803) 777-5676 if you have any questions or are interested in participating in this mother study.

Participation in the mother study takes about 3 hours. It involves completing some interviews and questionnaires.

This mother study focuses on understanding the range of experiences, thoughts and preferences, and communication styles that families with and without children with disabilities experience. We hope our results will help us learn the best ways to support families who have children affected by developmental disorders such as autism and fragile X syndrome.
