Screening the Development and Behavior of Young Boys with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD)

The UC Davis Neuromuscular Research Center is actively recruiting parents of young boys with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), as well as parents of non-affected same-age male peers.

The primary objective of this study is to explore the use of online screening tools to identify possible developmental delays and behavioral challenges in young boys with DMD.

Participation in this study requires approximately 1-1½ hours of completing online questionnaires about your child’s development and behavior.

Inclusion Criteria for Parents of Sons with DMD:

  • Parents must have a son under 7 years of age with a diagnosis of DMD from a medical professional
  • Parents must be able to read and write in English
  • Parents must have access to the internet
  • Parents of boys with DMD will be encouraged to invite a parent of a non-affected male peer to participate in the study too

Inclusion Criteria for Parents of Non-Affected Sons:

  • Parents must have a son under 7 years of age who has not been diagnosed with DMD
  • Parents must be able to read and write in English
  • Parents must have access to the internet
