Survey on Child Behaviour and Parenting Strategies

Liz O'Nions, a researcher at KU Leuven, is running a survey in order to research strategies used by parents to manage difficult behaviour.  The survey is open until the end of November.  The following information is from Liz.

Research open to parents/carers of children aged 6 to 16 who live in the UK/Europe.

We are looking for parents/carers of children who experience difficulties (including, but not limited to children on the autism spectrum), to take part, as well as parents of children with no particular problems.

Taking part would involve you completing some questionnaires about your perspectives on your child's behaviour, and the strategies and approaches that you use to manage it. The questionnaires are split into five sections, and should take about 45 minutes to one hour to complete altogether.

The questionnaires measure things like your child's social skills, anxiety, difficulties with peers, and non-compliant or demand avoidant behaviour. We have also included questionnaires looking at what strategies you use to manage behaviour and how you interact with your child, as well as your feelings about how you handle difficult behaviour.

We will get back in touch with parents who take part in six months' time to ask them to complete a subset of the questionnaires again. We will also send out a summary of our findings once the study is complete and the data have been analysed.


Antibiotic Awareness

NHS Leicester is supporting Public Health England's campaign to raise awareness of the dangers of overusing antibiotics.


Christmas Meal – 18 December

The Club will be having the annual Christmas Meal for its members on 18 December.  The cost is £6 per person.  Those wishing to attend must return the form with payment no later than 27 November.  Note: It has been confirmed that, despite the sudden closure of Yates's, they are honouring existing bookings and so this can still go ahead.

Donations Requested

As a result of the Government's austerity programme, we have lost 50% of our funding.  If we cannot find funds, we may be forced to close the Club.  Therefore, we are looking for donations to enable us to continue to provide this valuable service to our members.
