What is the study about?
The aim of this international research project is to find out how individuals with special needs are coping with the Covid-19 pandemic and all its repercussions. Indeed, we are interested in learning about what is unique to their and their parentsʼ experience of the pandemic. 

Who can participate?
Parents of people (children or adults) with Special Needs (e.g. Autism Spectrum Disorder, Williams Syndrome, Down Syndrome, etc.).

What will you be required to do?
Answer a questionnaire about how you and your child are experiencing the pandemic, in terms of health issues, coping with stress and social distancing, etc. It is completely anonymous and will take you about 30 minutes to answer.

Why is this study and your participation useful?
This study would contribute to a better understanding of the experiences and feelings of people with special needs and of their parents, thus informing the design of future interventions to improve their quality of life.
