This researcher contacted the SLN to share her study and the SLN Research Committee agreed to post it after ensuring it has been approved by her university Institutional Review Board:
Thank you for your time and interest. I am conducting research on the impact of disabilities and illnesses on siblings. Specifically, I am investigating the relationship of social support and psychological adjustment in siblings of individuals with disabilities (medical, psychiatric, or developmental). It is my hope that this research will highlight the need for increased social support for siblings of individuals with disabilities and provide the evidence needed to increase funding in these areas.
Please consider taking a brief survey to participate. All participants must be at least 18 years-old and have at least one sibling (with or without a disability). Participants of the survey will have an opportunity to win one of two $50 Amazon gift cards.
Please click on the link or copy and paste the link to your browser to complete the survey.
Feel free to share your thoughts about the survey and pass it on to others.
Thank you for your assistance!
