Objective

 Evaluate if online surveys can be used for monitoring and evaluating peer support groups for caregivers of children with special needs

Key Notes/Findings:

  • Evaluated same peer support group as in Hammarberg et al.
  • In spite of being likely to have limited discretionary time, parents and other caregivers of young children with special needs were willing and able to complete the brief, online surveys about their experiences of participating in peer-support groups
  • Consistent with Hammarberg et al., most caregivers who responded to the online survey reported significant benefit from participation, including social support from people in similar situations, access to relevant information and ideas and having ‘‘time out’’. Negative experiences were also similar
