NHS Deaf Children, Young People & Family Service are looking for research participants to assist with the validation of Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire
“The National Deaf Children, Young People and Family Service are a specialist new mental health service developed to meet the needs of d/Deaf people. Their research team are in the process of creating a measure of emotional, social and behavioural difficulties which will be suitable to use with young BSL users. We have translated an existing questionnaire, the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) into BSL. We now need the help of deaf young people, their parents and their teachers to check whether our translation is valid.”
What will happen if I take part?
- Young person, parent and teacher will do a short questionnaire (in BSL or English)
- Some families and their teacher might be asked to do a short interview afterwards (in BSL or English)
- Some families and their teacher might be asked to do the questionnaire again 1-2 weeks later
- The research assistant will explain the project fully to you to make sure you understand what the research is about and agree to take part.
