About the Research
What is this research about and why is it important?
Clinical reports and parental accounts suggest that children with PDA have difficulties at school. They may require higher levels of support, be more likely to be educated in special placements, and be at higher risk of being excluded. Building a systematic picture of the experiences of these children in schools is therefore important in order to increase awareness of the difficulties faced by children and their families. That is what this research aimed to do.
This research has now ended. Many thanks to all who took part!
