We Need Your Help!

Posted on: 17 July 2017

The PRISM Study team are designing an e-learning resource for teachers to provide them with information about the long term-effects of very premature birth, and to help them support the development and learning of children born prematurely.

We are looking for volunteers from the following groups to help us design this resource:

• Parents of children born very prematurely (children of any age)

• Young adults who were born very prematurely and are now between 18 and 25 years old.

• Primary school teachers

• Primary school teaching assistants

• Primary or secondary school SENCOs

• Educational Psychologists

This will involve participating in a group workshop to tell us what you feel are the most important things teachers need to know about children born very prematurely, and discuss ideas on how you think this information would be best communicated.

We are running the workshop at the University of Leicester on the 16th August, 10:00 – 15.30, and we are looking for volunteers to come along and help us.

Reasonable travel expenses and a contribution of up to £50 towards childcare costs can be reimbursed. Although we cannot pay you for your time, you will receive a £20 voucher as a token of appreciation.
