The Community Adult Learning Disability Services team has asked us to share the following information about an online survey of family views about internet use by people with learning disabilities.
If you are a family member of someone with a learning disability, please fill in the above survey about your cared-for’s internet use. The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete and everyone who completes the questionnaire will be entered into a draw for a £30 voucher.
Funded by Manchester Metropolitan University, this research aims to provide an up-to-date picture of the issues around Internet use (and non-use) by people with learning disabilities and find out what support and services are available. It is said to be part of a wider research project about internet use by people with learning disabilities.
The researchers are also doing interviews with:
- people with learning disabilities,
- care workers, and
- professionals who are interested in supporting internet use by people who have learning disabilities.
