Some colleagues at KCL/SLaM are recruiting to two online surveys (taking up to 15 mins to complete) which aim to better understand professionals’ perspectives about the impact of COVID-19 on people with ASD and people with an intellectual disability, and to identify effective ways of supporting people to cope during and following the pandemic.
Please see below for details and please do circulate to colleagues.
Eligibility criteria are: researchers, and health and social care professionals, working with either of these clinical groups (no age parameters), in England. If people work with both clinical populations, they can do either or both studies as there may be distinctions in impact, coping styles and considerations between groups.
There will be a prize draw on 1 June, with five people receiving a £25 gift voucher.
The recruitment period is 28 April until 31 May 2020.
