Are you a parent of a child with a learning disability, aged 5 to 18 years? Do you have a few minutes to spare to fill out a brief questionnaire online?
A trainee clinical psychologist from the University of Edinburgh is carrying out an on-line survey into healthy eating in children with a learning disability. It is hoped that the study will enable the researchers to better understand the relationship between children's eating-related behaviours and parental beliefs/ attitudes. With increased understanding, it may be possible to better support parents to manage their children's diet-related behavioural problems, and also to better understand why obesity is more likely to develop amongst those with a learning disability. The RTS Support Group has asked for the results of the research to assess whether we may be able to benefit from it.
