Do you have learning difficulties? Do you know, or support somebody with learning difficulties? What research needs to be done to help improve the lives of people with learning difficulties?

We were approached recently by Ai Keow Lim, a researcher from Edinburgh University's SMC Research Centre for Learning Difficulties, with regard to different ways to consult with people with communication difficulties. She was wanting to explore ways to help people with communication and learning difficulties to have a say on different priorities for research into ways to improve their lives.

The Research Priorities for Learning Difficulties Project was launched today by The Salvesen Mindroom Centre, in collaboration with The University of Edinburgh and The James Lind Alliance.

Research Priorities for Learning DifficultiesHere's a description of the project:
"Research Priorities for Learning Difficulties in Children and Young People is a project to find out what research is most important to people living with learning difficulties and those working alongside them. Across Scotland, we’re asking people who have learning difficulties, their families and the professionals working alongside them, to complete a short survey telling us what they would want researchers to find out about learning difficulties. By bringing all the responses together, the project will identify the top 10 research priorities for learning difficulties amongst children and young people. The results will help inform future research work into learning difficulties and the work of the Salvesen Mindroom Centre."

If you are interested in the project, have a look at the SMC web site and complete the survey form.
