Autism Spectum Disorder Research

I'm currently conducting a research study for my Masters thesis on comorbidity in children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders in Ireland.

Comorbidity is the presence of one or more disorders in addition to a primary disorder. I wish to examine the presence of co-occurring diagnoses, sleep problems, gastro-intestinal symptoms and epilepsy.

The prevalence of comorbidity in children with autism spectrum disorders has never been examined in Ireland to date, and this study aims to yield data that is currently unavailable in Ireland.

I was wondering if you would be willing to help me by filling out a questionnaire?

N.B.**Even if your child has no comorbid symptoms, you can still fill out a questionnaire.**

Please contact if you are interested in helping me with this study, or have any questions about the research.

I can email or post you a copy of the questionnaire and stamped addressed envelope.

My email address is

Thanking you,
Arlene Mannion

Hi Arlene,

I'll fill out your questionnaire, but I'd like a favour in return please.

Could you send me via email any of the latest research on ABA, particularly in mainstream classroom settings, or NET. I have a forthcoming tribunal.

Many thanks in advance.

Do you only want people who are living in Ireland?
