Road Safety and SEN

SarahOToole Member Posts: 2 Listener

University College London is conducting a research project to explore road safety in children with special educational needs (SEN), including ADHD, autism, and cognition and learning impairments.

Children and young people with SEN are especially vulnerable on the roads and we want to understand their experiences from their own perspective. We are looking for families with a child/young person between 7 and 18 years-old with SEN to participate in our road safety research project. We are interested in how children/young people with SEN travel and learn about road safety. In this project children/young people will be given cameras and asked to film journeys they make that involve some walking. We will then ask children/young people about their films. We will also interview parents/caregivers about teaching road safety to children/young people with SEN.

We would really love to hear from you, so if you would be interested in being involved or would like to hear more then please do not hesitate to get in touch with me (Sarah O’Toole) at [email protected].

Road safety education is a vital part of promoting children and young people’s safety on the roads and your participation would be greatly appreciated.

This project is funded by the Department for Transport and has been approved by UCL Ethics Committee.
