Road to Recovery project: what do we know so far?
The Road to Recovery project’s principal investigator, Dr Karri Gillespie-Smith, speaks about what preliminary data from our online survey is telling us so far.
This survey is investigating parents’ experiences during the pandemic in terms of their mental health, access to support, parent coping strategies and child behaviours.
Road to Recovery project: what is photovoice?
The Road to Recovery project is using photovoice methods in order to capture the thoughts and experiences of children and young people with intellectual difficulties both during the pandemic and now during the recovery phases.
This method can involve taking pictures, as well as drawing and storytelling activities, which helps children and young people express themselves to ensure their voices and experiences are heard.
Road to Recovery project: parents’ experiences of the pandemic
The Road to Recovery project asked parents of children with intellectual difficulties and complex needs about their experiences during lockdown, as well as how they feel now the restrictions are starting to ease.
