Social Inclusion of Children with and without Developmental Disabilities (DD)


We want to learn about the factors that are associated with the social participation and inclusion of preschool and early-school aged children with and without DD and the experience of their families. This information is very important for informing families, community and social services to better meet the needs of all children and their families.

Volunteers will be asked to fill out a series of questionnaires via an online survey

We are looking for parents who have a child:

– between the ages of 3 and 8 years

– who is typically developing, or who has a developmental disability (e.g., Down syn-drome, Autism Spectrum Disorder, developmental delay, etc.)

This study will take about 60 to 90 minutes to complete

Participants will be entered into a draw to win 1 of 5 – $25 gift certificates for your choice of either Toys R Us, Chapters, or Starbucks

Please follow the link to

Thank you for your interest!!
