Adult Sibling Survey for Parents

The siblings of individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are becoming parents themselves. It is not yet known what the risk for ASD is among their children, how to predict it, and who might benefit from intervening early.

If you have a sibling with ASD (this could include a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder, autism, Asperger Syndrome, or pervasive developmental disorder) and you are also a parent, then you can help us answer this important question by completing a brief survey for the Second Generation Survey Project.

Please note that
» All of your information will remain confidential (only your IP address is logged to prevent duplication of data),

» There is no cost to participate, and
» You will have the option to provide your contact information so we can tell you about further opportunities for study participation (which include compensation).

Before starting the survey, please answer the following 2 screening questions to determine if you are eligible.  If you are eligible for the study, you will next be asked to review the informed consent language and then give consent at the beginning of the survey.

Find out if you are eligible for this survey.


If you have any questions about the Second Generation Survey Project, please feel free to contact us.
