ASD Research on Fathers of Kids with ASD in Rural Schools of Midwestern USA
“My current research project on fathers of children with autism who attend a rural school in the midwestern United States will balance the existing body of research,” said Montgomery.
In the final stage of this doctoral journey, Montgomery said he requires help from some dads in rural areas.
For this research, he will conduct a 60-minute interview with fathers of children with autism who attend a rural school via Zoom conferencing software. Montgomery will also be conducting two focus group sessions (60-90 minutes) composed of six fathers each. Everything is completely confidential, and no names or locations will be used. He will be recording each audio conversation to assist with data collection.
Each participant will receive a $15 Amazon gift card for the individual interview and an additional $15 Amazon gift card for focus group participation.

“South Dakota Parent Connection has helped me in so many ways. My daughter received a brain injury. Until then, she was a typical child. Since her injury we have struggled financially and emotionally. We didn't know where to begin to research or how to go about everything we were now facing. SD Parent Connection helped reduce the overwhelming feeling to a manageable task by narrowing options down to what specifically pertained to us.”
