Therapeutic Relationship of Primary Caregivers of Children with ASD and Speech-Language Pathologists

Hello! My name is Rachel Nokes, and I’m completing a Master’s thesis project on factors that contribute to the therapeutic alliance between caregivers of children with ASD and their child’s speech-language pathologist (SLP). I hope to discover how this relationship is viewed and valued by caregivers. If you are the primary caregiver of a child with ASD between Kindergarten and 5th grade and would like to participate, please click on the link below. Thank you!
