Research Project #1Immigrant Parent Experiences of Receiving their Child’s Psychoeducational Diagnosis: Informing School Psychologists’ Practice

This study is aimed to improve communication between immigrant families and psychologists. If you are an immigrant parent whose child has received a psychoeducational diagnosis (e.g., learning disability, intellectual disability, ADHD, ASD, anxiety, depression), she would love to hear from you.

The goal of this research is to understand your experience when receiving news of your child’s diagnosis in the feedback meeting with the psychologist, with the aim of identifying ways to improve communication between psychologists and immigrant families in the future. If you are eligible, you will be invited to participate in two individual interviews, which can be conducted in person (in Vancouver) or online via Zoom. To thank you for your time, you will receive a $20 e-gift card for each interview ($40 total).

By sharing your story, you contribute to understanding how psychologists can better support families in similar situations. This study is part of Anisa’s master’s research in the School and Applied Child Psychology program at UBC, under the supervision of Dr. Laurie Ford.

Anisa plans to finish up data collection by mid-July at the latest. If you are interested or want to learn more, please email

Research Project #2 – This research focuses on understanding the coparenting relationship among parents of children with ADHD.

This study aims to contribute to the knowledge of how parenting children with ADHD impacts the parenting relationship between partners or spouses.

This opportunity will provide parents with an opportunity to voice their opinions and share their experiences. The insights gained from this research may lead to valuable findings that can help educators and parents better support families of children with ADHD.

Participants will be contacted at the end of the project to receive a copy of the report and information on the presentation of the results, if they are interested. Upon the study’s completion, participants will receive a $30 (CAD) gift card as a token of appreciation for their time. Additionally, parents will be provided with a list of mental health and ADHD resources. Minyeong will be finishing recruiting families by the end of this year, possibly earlier than that.
