Measuring child outcomes in disability services

Development and trial of the child version of the Outcomes and Impact Scale

It is important that disability services have a positive impact on people with disability. The research team at Scope are carrying out research to adapt and then test a survey that has been designed for adults so that it can be used with carers of children/ young people with disability (0-14 years). The survey focuses on measuring outcomes of service provision.

Help us with this research about measuring outcomes in disability services. We are inviting carers of children/ young people (0-14 years of age) with disability to participate in a focus group. In the focus group we will discuss how services impact the child/young person you care for, and what needs to be changed in the survey that we have developed about service outcomes.

We will discuss arrangements for the focus group with you, to ensure it is at a convenient time and location.
