Survey for parents / caregivers of children with cerebral palsy (open)

Study: Online testing of the 'Measure of Early Vision Use' (MEVU) with parents of children with cerebral palsy

Closing Date: January 2019

Participant Details:

  • Country: any country
  • Age: Parents/Caregivers of children up to the age of 12
  • Other: The study is seeking parents/caregivers of children with cerebral palsy, or a high risk of cerebral palsy. We are seeking parents of children with a range of visual abilities.

Participant Requirements:

Parents/caregivers will be asked to complete an online survey that includes answering some basic questions about yourself and your child with CP; Completing the 14 MEVU questions (each with 4 response options); and there is the option to complete a second questionnaire on visual skills.

Purpose of Study:

This online survey is one part of a research project to develop and test a new way to assess how children with cerebral palsy (CP) use vision in everyday activities. The 'Measure of Early Vision Use' (MEVU) has been developed from talking to families and clinicians who work with children with CP and it has been tested and refined by talking to a small number of families. We are now ready to test it with a bigger group of parents.
