Learning Difficulties Research – Have your say (Phase 2)

Salvesen Mindroom Centre and University of Edinburgh

Please spare 10 minutes to complete this important Scottish survey. Select your Top 10 research priorities for learning difficulties.

Delivered by the University of Edinburgh, the survey is asking you to select 10 from a list of 40 research questions about learning difficulties in children and young people. The results will show what learning difficulties research should be focusing on and will influence future research funding.

Full details about the survey are here

The survey is the second phase of a project launched last year by The Salvesen Mindroom Centre and being delivered by The University of Edinburgh. 828 research questions were submitted as part of a first survey conducted last summer. Thank you if you took part in the first survey. Following analysis, these have been summarised into 40 questions. We now need children and young people with learning difficulties, their parents and carers and professionals working alongside them to select their top 10 research priorities from the shortlist of 40.

The James Lind Alliance, an expert in facilitating priority setting projects for a range of different conditions funded by the National Institute for Health Research, is also working in partnership on the project. Dyslexia Scotland is one of the partners on the Steering Group.

The survey is open until 18 May 2018.

We’re also looking for children and young people living with learning difficulties and their parents/carers to complete the survey. Please contact the project team at the details below if you would like paper copies of the survey to distribute.
