Enrollment resumes for participants in mothers of FX youth study
The Waisman Center of the University of Wisconsin at Madison is recruiting participants for a research project designed to investigate the psychological well-being of women who have a son or daughter with fragile X syndrome. Participants must be the biological mother of an affected son or daughter who is currently between the ages of 11 and 17 years. Participating women would visit the Waisman Center on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The costs for eligible travel expenses, including hotel and airfare, will be covered by the project. They will also ask participating women to complete questionnaires at home right before their visit to the Waisman Center and again, approximately one year after their visit. If possible, we would also like the spouse or partner residing with the participating woman and one of the child's teachers to complete questionnaires at the start and then again, one year later. For more information and to learn if you are eligible, contact Dr. Len Abbeduto (email@example.com or 608-263-1737) or Jean Maddocks (firstname.lastname@example.org or 608-263-3619). This research is approved by a University of Wisconsin-Madison Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Particpants.
