Research

Our current research and development projects include the following:
  • A project to identify the main problem areas and issues related to feeding difficulties in children most relevant to include in parent/carer groups
  • Development and evaluation of a tube weaning protocol
  • Collaboration in a study designed to test how good the DAWBA (Development and Well-Being Assessment) is at identifying problems in children in the community and children seen in clinics (with Prof Tamsin Ford and Prof Robert Goodman)
  • Design and development of a clinical assessment measure for Avoidant restrictive Food Intake Disorder (with Kamryn Eddy and Jennifer Thomas, Boston, USA)
