The Centre provides a research function both follow-up for the children, young people, families and schools that we work with; research projects and the development of practical resources based on the Centre’s work.
Research follow-up is conducted in the form of face-to-face interviews, telephone interviews and online feedback. The data collected is used to inform the Centre’s practice and also to develop practical resources.
Individual research projects have been conducted in the areas of working memory, sensory differences and the efficacy of anxiety management training.
The research division also provides a free to download quarterly research bulletin. The research bulletin series provides summaries of peer reviewed research conducted across a range of areas relevant to the Centre’s work.
The research division also maintains a research panel, which is a group of parents and educational professionals who have volunteered to participate in online focus groups, questionnaires and occasionally research projects.
