Is your child less than 12 years of age? Are you interested in helping test a new online measure of ‘vision use’ for children with cerebral palsy?

Researchers from Australian Catholic University are testing a new questionnaire to describe how a child uses vision in everyday activities. They are seeking:

  • parents and caregivers of children aged between 3 months and 12 years of age who have a diagnosis or high risk of developing cerebral palsy; and
  • parents and caregivers of children with a range of visual abilities – good ability to use vision and not so good.

If you choose to participate, you will be asked to complete an online survey. There are some questions about you and your child, and the ‘Measure of Early Vision Use’ (MEVU) to complete. The MEVU consists of 14 questions and should not take more than 10 minutes to answer, however completion of the entire survey may take up to 40 minutes depending on how many sections you complete.

You can find more information in the Participant Information Sheet  Participant Information Sheet_CPv1.5_041018  and this information is also included on the first page of the survey.

You may open the survey by clicking on the link provided here, or pasting it into your web browser: https://rdcap.acu.edu.au/surveys/?s=D9XC9KXXJ8

We also invite you to forward this information to others who may be interested in participating.
