The MSU Family Stress lab is directed by Dr. Amy K. Nuttall, Assistant Professor of Human Development and Family Studies. The Family Stress Lab is conducting innovative research to understand the unique benefits and challenges of having a family member with ASD through two studies with siblings of individuals with ASD, one focused on teenage siblings (and parents) and one focused on young adult siblings.
Gifts allow the Family Stress Lab to continue this valuable research to understand the needs of siblings and parents of children with ASD. In additions, gifts help support important educational opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students seeking to gain research skills and professional experience working with families of children with ASD. For example, your gifts will directly support student researchers as they travel to Portland in February to present their groundbreaking autism research on family relationships and social support at the Society for Personality and Social Psychology’s annual conference. Conferences presentations are a critical way in which research is disseminated and a necessary professional experience for students pursuing doctoral degrees or striving to apply to graduate school after completing their undergraduate education at MSU.
