Internet use by people with learning disabilities: family members' views


#1

If you are a family member of someone with a learning disability we invite you to fill in our survey about their internet use https://mmu.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/internet-use-ld-family
The aim of this research is to provide an up-to-date picture of the issues around Internet use (and non-use) by people with learning disabilities and find out what support and services are available.
This research is funded by Manchester Metropolitan University.

This survey is part of a wider research project about internet use by people with learning disabilities. We are also doing interviews with
•people with learning disabilities,
•care workers, and
•professionals who are interested in supporting internet use by people who have learning disabilities.

Who can fill in this survey?
Family members of people with learning disability who live in the UK can complete the survey.

If you have more than one family member with learning disability, you are welcome to fill in the survey separately for each family member.

The project has been reviewed by the Faculty of Health, Psychology and Social Care Ethics Committee at Manchester Metropolitan University.
