The purpose of this study is to examine how family members, who have a child with autism, perceive problematic behaviors in relation to everyday activities. Parents, who have a child diagnosed with autism, were sought through social media for participation in this study. The material required for this project consisted of a parent survey created on SurveyMonkey. The link was shared online so that families who would like to participate could access the survey. Analysis will include a comparison of the themes and concerns expressed by the parents in their responses.
