If you are the mother, father or caregiver of children with a learning disability, this is your opportunity to inform research and policy for coming decades!

We understand that families play a vital role in their children’s lives. By listening to what families tell us we are able to help families see past barriers and discover a better life together.

Together with the Cerebra Family Research Group at the University of Warwick we are exploring the experiences of family members who live with a child with a learning disability aged 4 to 11 years. You can also take part if your child has a learning disability and other conditions such as Down syndrome, autism, or other genetic syndromes.

The study involves taking a short survey and we are really keen to hear from at least one person in the family. We would like to hear from fathers as well as mothers.

We want to make this the largest study ever of families of children with learning disability in the UK. The 1,000 families study will further understanding of what it is like to raise a child with a learning disability and will help shape future information and support for families and children – so please get involved.

To find out more about the study and to complete the online survey please visit the website. If you prefer you can request a paper copy of the survey.

If you have any questions please email: familyresearch@warwick.ac.uk
