The Institute of Education, part of University College London, are looking for research participants, they ask:
Hello, I am part of a team of researchers based in London who investigate how children’s brains work. In particular, we want to know how children process visual information and whether this has any effect on how they perceive and move around their environment.
As part of our research we will ask children to complete some movement-based tasks, two short verbal and non-verbal ability tasks and some computerised visual processing games involving eye tracking! All of this should take no longer than 2 hours (with breaks) to get through!
I will also ask you, as the child’s parent or guardian, to complete some short forms gathering your views about your child’s movement in everyday situations, such as at home or at school.
Your child can take part if s/he is aged between 5 and 15 years old and has been given a diagnosis of Developmental Coordination Disorder/Dyspraxia.
We will reimburse your travel costs and your child will receive a certificate and gift card for their participation.
