Current Projects:

READ-IT: Teaching early reading skills to adults with intellectual disabilities.

This is a feasibility study examining whether an intervention that is used to teach adults with intellectual disability to read can be delivered successfully by community support workers/family carers. The study also examines whether it would be feasible to conduct a later definitive RCT of the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of READ-IT.

TIC-TOC: A public awareness campaign designed to help people living in deprived communities recognise vague cancer symptoms.

This is a feasibility study that aims to examine the feasibility and acceptability of delivering and evaluating the TIC-TOC intervention, an intervention designed to deliver key messages about vague cancer symptoms to people living in deprived communities, to support progression to a future effectiveness trial. The study will also aim to assess the feasibility of data collection, inform data collection requirements for a potential future trial including the feasibility of collecting linked data, and investigate the feasibility of collecting data required to undertake a full cost-effectiveness analysis in a future trial.
