How to take part

About the study

We would like to understand how the Covid-19 measures and restrictions impacted children and young people's mental health and well-being during the pandemic.

Who can take part?

We invite parents/guardians to take part on behalf of children and young people (must be aged 4-25 years and have a diagnosis of ASD and/or ADHD).

To take part in this study, you must be a fluent English speaker and live in the United Kingdom. You will need a smart phone or laptop/computer/tablet with access to the internet. You will also need a personal email address.

What will it involve?

You will be required to complete a short online survey which will ask for some personal information.

We will then ask you to participate in a one-to-one interview with the researcher, over the phone or using a video conferencing platform, such as Microsoft Teams (face-to-face or audio-only).

If you would like more information about the study or wish to take part, please contact the researcher: [email protected]
