Red River Ex

Once again, our friends at The Red River Exhibition, have graciously given us a select number of invitations for their special Free Day for children with disabilities which will take place on Monday, June 19, 2017.   This event is for children with special needs who are 10 years of age or younger.  They ask that only pre-school aged siblings and parents/guardians accompany the invited guest.   Space is limited and you only have one week left to register!!  We have left our remaining invitations at the SMD building on Sherbrook if you would like to drop by the front desk and pick one up!!  Enjoy the Ex!!

Online Survey

Dear Parent or Guardian,

My name is Samantha Goldsmith and I am an undergraduate student in the psychology department at Queen’s University.  I am currently completing my fourth year research project under the supervision of Dr. Beth Kelley. I am writing to you today to invite you to participate in my research study on social and emotional behaviour in children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The study will be looking at the importance of emotion regulation and how it is related to different symptoms of ASD.  This study has been approved by Queen’s General Research Ethics Board.
If you decide to participate in this study, you will complete four brief questionnaires regarding your child and his/her behaviour in social or emotional situations. In total, the completion of these questionnaires should take no longer than approximately 20 to 25 minutes. If your child is above the age of 12 and has sufficient language abilities, s/he will also be asked to participate in this study by completing two brief questionnaires. These questionnaires should take approximately 10 to 15 minutes for your child to complete. All of the information from these questionnaires will be completely anonymous, and will be connected to a family ID number rather than your name, email, or any other identifying information. The data from all participating families will be combined and analyzed. The findings will be used in my honours thesis, a written document that will be completed and presented at the end of this academic year. It may also be submitted for publication, without any information included that would identify you or your child.
Your participation in this study is completely voluntary. If you would like to participate, you may access the questionnaire package by clicking on the link below.
If you have any questions about the study, please feel free to contact me at  or at 613-533-2894.
Thank you very much for your time.
Samantha Goldsmith
