Research participants required – University of Surrey

University of Surrey are looking for adult participants for a study they are running.  Please find all the information we have received from them following.  Should you have any queries, please do contact Shiloh Grant Smith at the email given in the text.  Please note that this is not a Dyspraxia Foundation run study.

‘We are researchers at the University of Surrey aiming to improve our understanding of anxiety and participation in physical activity in adults with Developmental Coordination Disorder (also known as ‘dyspraxia’).

In this study, you will be asked to visit the University of Surrey to complete a range of tasks and questionnaires, which will take around 2-3 hours. During some of these tasks, we will record your heart rate and skin response. You will then be asked to record your levels of physical activity for a week by wearing an activity watch, before returning to the University for a final short visit.

You can take part if you are 18 or over and have Developmental Coordination Disorder or dyspraxia. We will be able to reimburse you for your travel to the University of Surrey in Guildford.

If you are interested in taking part or would like to learn more about the study, please email Shiloh Grant Smith on for more information.
No further participants will be recruited after 1st August 2017.

This study has been reviewed by and received a favourable ethical opinion from the University of Surrey Ethics Committee.

*Please note, a formal diagnosis of DCD/dyspraxia is not required to participate in this study.’
