Parent Perceptions of Literacy Instruction for Children with Autism During COVID-19

The purpose of this online survey research study is to better understand the potential impact of COVID-19 on literacy instruction and support on families with a child with autism.

You will be emailed a link to online survey questions about your child’s social communication and behavior skills, reading and writing skills, and the types of reading and writing instruction and intervention services your child received over the last 1.5 years.

This study will ask you to think about your child’s reading and writing skills during three focal time points: Last School year (which represents the time between August/September 2019 and March 2020), COVID-19 Disruption (which represents the time between March 2020 and July/August 2020), and Current School year (which represents August/September 2020 to Now).

The time needed to complete the online questionnaires will be 60-75 minutes. You may choose to complete the survey in smaller time increments as well.

You may be contacted by phone or email by research staff for follow-up if some questions are incomplete.
