Resiliency Intervention for Parents of Children with Learning Disabilities

Researchers at the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine are conducting a research study to learn about stress and coping among parents of children with specific learning disabilities. If you are parent of an elementary school-aged child with learning disabilities, we want to talk to you. Your input will help inform the design of a new Resiliency Program for Parents of Children with Specific Learning Disabilities.

Purpose and Benefits

We want to talk to you about stress and coping.  Your input will help shape a Resiliency Program for Parents of Children with Learning Disabilities.  You will be compensated $25 for your time and expertise.

If you join this study, you will be asked to:

  • Fill out a short survey about your background
  • Take part in a 60-90 minute focus group, in-person or via the web
  • Complete an anonymous, online survey after the focus group

Who Can Participate

Parents of young/elementary school-aged children with specific learning disabilities are encouraged to take part.
