Cerebra 1,000 Families Study



1,000 Families Study

Are you the parent or parental caregiver of a child aged 4-15 years 11 months of age that has a learning disability? If so, please take part in our new ‘Cerebra 1000 Families study.’ Your child might have other conditions - such as Autism, or any one of a number of genetic syndromes. As long as your child also has a learning disability, we would be very keen to hear from you.

The Cerebra Family Research Group, at the University of Warwick, in collaboration with the research charity Cerebra, wishes to explore the experiences of families who live with a child with a learning disability in the UK. We want to make this the largest study ever of families of children with learning disability in the UK.

This research will further our understanding of what it is like to raise a child with a learning disability in the UK and will help shape future support for families and children.

Any enquiries, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us at

We would like to thank everyone for your interest.

The survey is now closed as we have reached our target of getting 1000 families involved in the research study.
