The survey is looking to understand the long-term impact of COVID-19 infection for adults with learning disabilities (LD) and the association with dysphagia.
The Cornwall Intellectual Disability Equitable Research (CIDER) group, an international team based at the University of Plymouth and Cornwall NHS Foundation Trust, has launched the survey.
This work is being carried out in partnership with the RCSLT and will provide much needed information to guide speech and language therapy clinical practice.
If you are an SLT working with adults with LD who have had COVID-19 and are experiencing dysphagia, please complete the survey by Wednesday 30 November.
This should take you no more than 30 minutes and can be carried out based upon your clinical insight into your service user with LD, or together with them and/or their family/carers as appropriate.
