Research Participants Needed

Mealtimes on the Spectrum – Waitlist Only

We have developed an online toolkit to make mealtimes more meaningful and functional for families with children on the autism spectrum. We want to evaluate the toolkit to see if it is useful for families.

To qualify for the study you must:

  • Be an adult
  • Have an email account that you check regularly
  • Be the parent or legal guardian of a child diagnosed with autism
  • Live with that child at least 50% of the time
  • The child must be in elementary or middle school (or the equivalent homeschooled)

To be added to the waitlist, enter your name and email below and we’ll be in touch with you if more availability opens:

If you choose to participate, you will be asked to take an online survey and then another online survey in 10 weeks. Each survey will take 45 minutes – 1 hour. After you take the second survey you will receive a $40 Amazon gift card. Afterward, you can also participate in a phone interview and receive a $15 Amazon gift card. Some people will receive access to the toolkit after the first survey and will also receive emails about mealtimes once a week for 8 weeks. Some will not get access to the toolkit until after the second survey.

If you have questions, email them to Majd Subih at
