Call for participants: Academic research focused on the social and academic inclusion of adolescents with and without visual impairments

A PhD researcher in the Department of Psychology at Kingston University London is looking for participants to help with research into the social and academic inclusion of adolescents with and without visual impairments.

Sighted and visually impaired adolescents aged 12-14 years old will be asked to complete three questionnaires: the first one is a demographic questionnaire, the second one is focused on the social relationship that they have developed with their favourite teacher and the third one is a questionnaire focused on the social relationship that they have developed with their closest friend in school. These questionnaires will take approximately 30-45 minutes. The main researcher is going to ask the questions and adolescents will answer them. The teachers that the adolescents will nominate as their favourite ones will be asked to complete a questionnaire focused on these students’ academic inclusion (test grades and classroom participation). This will take approximately 15 minutes to complete and they can do it in their own time. Additionally, we would like to have access to the academic grades that students have received in English, Maths and Science on the last report (this will be done after obtaining permission from for parents and students.

If you would be interested in participating, please contact Ifigeneia Manitsa BEd, MSc, AFHEA, Psychology Researcher and Seminar Tutor via email k1738620@kingston.ac.uk. The researcher is happy to travel to conduct interviews, which can also be done via Skype or telephone. Besides that, participants can complete the questionnaires and return them via e-mail or by post (the cost will be covered).
