A new project has been launched by The Salvesen Mindroom Centre, in collaboration with The University of Edinburgh and The James Lind Alliance and the team behind it would love to get the opinions of as many people as possible.
Research Priorities for Learning Difficulties in Children and Young People is a project to find out what research is most important to people living with learning difficulties and those working alongside them. Across Scotland, the team are asking people who have learning difficulties, their families and the professionals working alongside them, to complete a short survey telling them what they would want researchers to find out about learning difficulties. By bringing all the responses together, the project will identify the top 10 research priorities for learning difficulties amongst children and young people. The results will help inform future research work into learning difficulties and the work of the Salvesen Mindroom Centre.
The short survey is available online here and in paper format. A child-friendly paper version is also available. Please email LD_Research@ed.ac.uk for copies.
The deadline for all returned surveys is 31 July, 2017.
