Children who seem different from their friends may sometimes experience teasing or
bullying. Some children find these experiences difficult to manage. Researchers from the University of the West of England are investigating the ways family life can help children cope. We hope to learn how to help children to deal with difficult experiences in the future. Your help would be invaluable.
We are looking for children aged between eight and eleven, who have a health condition, such as a food allergy or intolerance, or coeliac disease, and live in the Bristol or Reading areas, to help with this project.
Children and parents will be asked to fill out questionnaires.
Many children have found being involved in research is a positive and enjoyable experience, giving them a chance to
express their own thoughts and feelings.
If you are
interested in finding out more about being involved, please contact Rebecca Bellew. (Contact does not
commit your family to being
involved with the work.)
