Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Chair Feedback (8-28-2022): Thank you for your submission. I have reviewed chapters 1 and 2 and have your feedback below. First I will start with some general comments and then move to more specific comments. Also, please not remove my comments so when you send me the revisions I know what you were asked to address.
Please note that in review of your paper I noted that is does not align with APA 7th edition. Probably because the editions changed since you last worked on this paper. That said, please go through this document and change any citations with three or more authors to citing just the first authors name followed by et al. This was a change that was made in switching from 6th ed to 7th ed.
Please note that because you have not worked on this document in some time you need to update your references/citations. The majority of the citations should now be published between 2018-2022. Try your best to include more recent citations to support your position.
Please remove ASD and spell out Autism Spectrum Disorder in the whole document.
Please also note that I changed your design to a descriptive design. In reviewing your paper it appears that this aligns best with your purpose. As a result, I changed your problem, purpose and RQs for review. Please make sure that you make the needed changes in areas that I noted. The changes are:
The purpose of this qualitative, descriptive research design is to understand the unique systematic barriers that Latino and African American parents with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder face as well as the perceived role that racial bias may play in accessing continuous, quality care for their autistic children in New York
RQ1: How do Latino and African American parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder describe unique systematic barriers they experience when accessing continuous, quality care for their autistic children?
RQ2: How do Latino and African American parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder describe their perception of the role that racial bias may play in accessing continuous, quality care for their autistic children in New York?
The research design and assumption, limitation and delimitation section need the greatest amount of change. In the research design, add the following:
• Discuss what a qualitative descriptive design is, and how it reflects your study.
• Id the population of focus, the sample size, the sampling criteria to participate in the study, and the sampling method.
• Provide a brief overview of where/how you will get your participants for the study.
• Identify and discuss the method of data collection (i.e. semi-structured interview questions).
• Identify the steps for collecting the data (identify participants, read the overview of the study, informed consent.
• Then briefly identify the method of data analysis. You are using thematic analysis, so identify the six steps and articulate as best you can how your study will reflect those steps.
In the assumption, limitation and delimitation please add the following:
• Define what an assumption, limitation and delimitation are. Assumptions are what you the researcher assume about the study. Limitations, are limitations of your research design (descriptive design). And delimitations are essentially limitations you the researcher sets. I noted that your limitations were mostly delimitations so you can just shift them there.
Include 3-4 of each in the format I included.
Chapter 2 just needs to have the headers changes and updated citations 2018-2022.
I will send you a copy of my Dissertation Chapters 1 and 2.
