A Comparison of Caregiver Burden Among Parents of Children With Cerebral Palsy and Tourette Syndrome
Are you the parent of a child who was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome, or Cerebral Palsy or the parent of a child (children) with no known disability? We are hoping to learn more about the burdens caregivers face caring for children with disabilities and how that is different from the burdens of parents with children without a disability.
You will complete an online survey that takes about 20 minutes to complete. Your participation can help others to better understand caregiver burden which can help others parent in the future. This study takes place entirely online.
Caregiving parents of children with CP or TS along with parents of children without disabilities will be recruited from online support groups to complete the Caregiver Burden Inventory (CBI), The Caregiver Self-Assessment Questionnaire (CSAQ), and the Inclusion of Other in the Self (IOS) scale online. Data will be analyzed using three 3-way ANOVAs to look for main and interaction effects. Factors of (1) diagnosis; (2) Caregiver status (primary versus secondary); (3) Caregiver gender role will be used for each of the three ANOVAs (CBI; CSAQ; IOS scale).
Adult parents/caregivers ages 18+.
Your child is ages 5-12.
Your child has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy or with Tourette Syndrome *OR* your child (children) have no known disabilities.
