    Parents of kids with type 1 under the age of 6 are needed are needed to evaluate an online community designed by and for other parents like you.

    You can take part in this research study if:
    - You are the parent or legal guardian of a child with type 1 diabetes (T1D) who is under 6 years old.
    - You have access to the Internet through a computer, tablet, and/or smart phone at least several times per week.
    - You and your child with T1D live in the United States while you are in the study, which will last about one year.

    About the study:
    Working with a web-based group of over 150 parents of very young children with T1D, over 30 diabetes healthcare providers, and a team of web designers, we have developed an online resource that aims to promote the health and wellbeing of young children with T1D and their parents.

    One-third of the Moms and Dads who sign up will be randomly assigned to continue receiving Usual Care for T1D that they receive now. The other two-thirds will also have access to an online community that provides information and support to parents of young children with T1D through a wide variety of resources. After six months, all Moms and Dads in the study will be able to use the online resource for the next six months.

    Participants can earn up to $150 for completing scheduled study questionnaires. Both the mother and father of a child with T1D can take part. All participation in this study is online; no direct contact with the researchers is necessary.

    The Principal Investigators are:
    Jessica Pierce, Ph.D., Nemours Children’s Hospital, Orlando, Florida
    Tim Wysocki, PhD, Nemours Center for Health Care Delivery Science, Jacksonville, Florida
