Parental Attitudes and Self-Efficacy Beliefs Regarding Sexual Health
The A.J. Pappanikou University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD) at UConn Health recruited volunteers for a public health research study.
Volunteers participated in an anonymous research study to better understand the parental attitudes and self-efficacy beliefs in providing sexual health education to their children with ASD. Parents are often the primary and only educators. Results will better inform future programming and support for parents.
- Parents (ages 25-55) of an adolescent (grade 6-12) with ASD
- Able to read English
Participation included a 25 minute online, anonymous survey
The study was conducted by:
Dr. Mary Beth Bruder, Ph.D. (PI)

This research project was approved by the UConn Health (IRB #16-235-2).
