Visual processing in children (closed)

Study: Visual processing in children age 5-18

Closing Date: project ongoing

Participant Details:

  • Country: any country
  • Age: Parents/Guardians of children aged 5-18
  • The study is open to parents/guardians of all children aged 5-18 years - children with and without disabilities, with and without visual impairment.

Participant Requirements:

Parents will be asked to complete an anonymous online questionnaire about their child's visual processing. It should take around 10 minuntes to complete.

Purpose of Study:

This study aims to see how many children might show behaviours which could indicate CVI. It aims to see whether there are any differences in response between those in different schools e.g. special school/mainstream and those with different characteristics e.g. those with learning disabilities and those without. This is done in the hope that it might encourage routine testing for CVI.
