We are primarily engaged in research and research-related activities. We are happy to send summaries of our research findings, to give talks to interest groups and to send copies of our academic papers if you are unable to find them online. However, we are not able to discuss individual children or offer educational or clinical advice about an individual child. We hope you find these links to external organisations and resources helpful.
