About Down's Syndrome : The Stay Calm Project – The development and evaluation of the Emotional Outburst Questionnaire

In the Stay Calm project, we are developing the Emotional Outburst Questionnaire to examine the characteristics of emotional outbursts in children and young people. We hope that this questionnaire will help us investigate the underpinnings of emotional outbursts, and also serve as a valuable tool for researchers and clinicians in the future, when looking at developing new intervention strategies.

We would like to invite parents and caregivers to complete the questionnaire. This will help ensure that the questionnaire is accurately measuring emotional outburst characteristics.

We are specifically looking for parents and caregivers of children and young people between 6 years old to 25 years old, who have emotional outbursts at least once a month.

Participation involves submitting anonymous responses to the newly designed online questionnaire, which asks about emotional outburst characteristics, such as frequency, duration, and behaviours, of the individual you care for. The questionnaire will take no more than 1 hour to complete (most likely around 30 minutes).
