New Study: experience of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities receiving life skills training.
14 March 2018
Recruitment for new study: Dr Ciara Padden, Dr Peter Baker & Gillian Eaglestone are now recruiting for their new study “The East Study: experiences of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities receiving life skills training”. They are looking for family members to participate in this study.
Are you a:
• Family member (i.e., parent or sibling) of an adult with a learning disability/autism?
• Are you based in London or South East England?
• Does your family member now, or did s/he in the past 5 years, attend a life skills training programme?
If you answered YES, we would like to hear from you.
Dr Ciara Padden, Dr Peter Baker and Ms Gillian Eaglestone are now recruiting family members of adults with learning disabilities or autism to take part in a study about their experiences of life skills training. Life skills help people deal with everyday challenges in life. Examples may include managing personal care or finances, taking part in leisure activities, or developing vocational skills (you can find more details here).
We would like to ask your views on life skills training. This would involve taking part in a focus group, a one-to-one-interview, or both. You do not need to be involved in a care role for your family member to take part in this study.
This project is funded by the NIHR School for Social Care Research.
