Dr. Ruth Milanaik is a developmental pediatrician at Cohen Children's Medical Center in New York. She is asking your assistance with an important research study related to gender identity development in youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

In order to examine the impact of gender identity development in children and adolescents with ASD on social relationships, researchers at Cohen Children's Medical Center in New York have devised a short anonymous questionnaire for parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Your responses to this questionnaire are instrumental to better understanding how gender identity develops in individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and help us to better assist individuals with ASD who may have gender-related concerns and their families.

You will find a link to a short, completely anonymous and confidential questionnaire below. It takes 10-15 minutes to complete this questionnaire, and completion is voluntary.
