About Down's Syndrome : COVID-19  – How are children and young people with additional needs and their families reacting  to the crisis?

Can you help with this study?

The research team are looking for parents to fill in a 30 minute anonymous questionnaire – it covers how you and your child are experiencing the pandemic in terms of health issues, coping with stress and social distancing etc.

If you would like to fill in the questionnaire, please go to www.specialneedscovid.org

The research team hope the study will contribute to a better understanding of the experiences and feelings of people who have additional needs but also of their parents. They hope this understanding will inform the design of future interventions to improve quality of life.
