Research Participants – University of Surrey

The University of Surrey is conducting research looking to understand the mental health and thinking abilities in adolescents with and without Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD)/Dyspraxia.

In the study, parents will be asked to complete some questionnaires about their child’s motor ability and thinking abilities (e.g. planning and memory). Your child will also be asked to complete a questionnaire about their mental health. We may also ask to visit your child at home to administer a short assessment of vocabulary and reasoning skills.

Your child can take part if he/she is aged between 12 and 16, and has a diagnosis of Developmental Coordination Disorder / dyspraxia.

If interested, please email Serif at s.omer@surrey.ac.uk for more information.

This study has received a favourable ethical opinion from the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences Ethics Committee, at the University of Surrey
