Dear Caregiver,
Our research team would like to invite you to participate in a very important survey, Feeding My Child with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders, to discuss what you experience in feeding your child with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD). The purpose of our research is to learn whether children with FASD have any difficulties with eating. The survey is part of a study, Eating Behavior in Children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders.Since there is very limited information about the effects of FASD on childhood nutrition, we are serious about this research -- and we 
would appreciate your help to guide our efforts. Our research team is located in the Nutritional Sciences Department, College of Human Sciences, at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, OK. The survey asks for your responses on a wide range of topics about your child's eating behavior, such as to food responsiveness, enjoyment of food, desire to drink, slowness in eating, food fussiness, satiety responsiveness, emotional overeating, and emotional undereating. We will use the results of the survey to help identify eating problems that might impair your child's nutrition, growth, and development. There is also a child behavior questionnaire and demographic questions.Your participation in the survey is completely voluntary, but we hope you take the time to share your responses about your child's eating behaviors. Overall, the questionnaires should take 30 to 40 minutes to complete. You are able to stop the survey to start again at a 
later time to complete if needed by copying and saving the link of the survey to paste in your computer. For the survey results to be the most meaningful and useful, we need your participation and responses to our questions. Thank you.
