Researching an early intervention programme for families of young children

The E-PAtS project team at the Universities of Warwick, Kent and Cardiff are currently testing the feasibility of researching an early intervention programme for families of young children (aged 18 months to 5 years) with learning disabilities or developmental difficulties, called Early Positive Approaches to Support (E-PAtS).

They are exploring opportunities for a future large research project using E-PAtS, and would be keen to understand your thoughts about any interest organisations such as yours might have in taking part. Please note that responding to the survey does not mean that your organisation is in any way committed to taking part in the future research; we are simply asking about potential interest.*

They have developed a short survey for organisations, like yours, to tell them their thoughts about being involved in a potential future study and delivering E-PAtS in the future. This survey, and some more information about E-PAtS and the survey, can be found by clicking this link:*

A short advert about the survey can be found here: E-PAtS survey advertisement.pdf (88.1 KB) and they hope that you might be able to share this within your organisation and to the organisations that you work with so that they can get a wider range of views, if that would be possible?

Please do not hesitate to contact Samantha Flynn if you have any questions about this. Her contact details are below.
