Interviews for school support for children with intellectual disabilities

Seeking participants for my dissertation! You can take part if you are aged 18 years or over and a parent of a school aged child with an intellectual disability.

This study is being conducted to gain a better understanding of the support that parents are given to help them to understand their children’s intellectual disability and the associated support that they and their child received from schools. A further aim is to identify areas where school support could potentially be improved. I am conducting this study as part of my MRes Thesis Research at Northumbria University.

This will be done through an interview that will take approximately 45 minutes to an hour.

This study and its protocol have received full ethical approval from the Department of Psychology Ethics Committee (Postgraduate Taught) in accordance with the School of Health and Life Sciences Ethics Committee (ref:28582).

Also if you decide to take part, please put your email or phone number in the qualtrics questionnaire! Without that I will not be able to contact you for an interview. I hope some of you get involved I would really like to be able to create positive changes for the community!
