About this survey

Who is this survey for?
This survey is aimed at all professionals working with children and young people with learning disabilities who focus on mental health/behavioural issues. 

This includes professionals in:
  • Learning Disability CAMHS Teams
  • Intensive Support Services
  • Psychology/Behavioural Services
  • Positive Behaviour Support Services
  • Lifespan Learning Disability Services
  • Educational settings
  • Private practice
  • Community Learning Disability Services for children and young people
  • Mainstream Services (eg CAMHS, Paediatrics)


Why complete this survey?
Currently there is no clear consensus about the best ways to gain meaningful feedback from children and young people with learning disabilities and their families about the services we provide.  This survey is part of a wider two year project funded by the British Psychological Society that is looking to address this.  It builds on a previous project completed in 2015.  

We really need your help to build up a clear picture of which outcome measures services are using across the UK and how useful you and families find these.  The findings will form part of national guidance which we will publish in 2020.

We are keen to include children and young people with a wide range of abilities including those with more profound and multiple disabilities.

How to do it
We have listed some of the most popular measures from our previous project as well as a 2018 CORC survey.  We have also left room for you to add your own as well.  You only need to answer further questions for those measures that you use routinely.

We really appreciate you taking the time to do this.  The more responses we can collect the more meaningful the results will be.
The survey should take no longer than 15-20 minutes to complete.
