In order to better understand how we can support adopted and fostered children throughout their education, Kim Clark, a member of ART, is currently working on a MSc study into the mental processes that allow us to plan, focus, remember instructions and be flexible with our thinking. The purpose of her project is to investigate how these processes in children who have been adopted, or are in foster care, differ from their non-fostered/adopted peers.
Testing will take place remotely over Zoom and involves children playing an enjoyable computer game where they plan and run their own birthday party! It takes about 45 minutes to complete and is really good fun.
If you are an adoptive or foster parent and would be interested in your child taking part, or would like to find out more, please email Kim Clark on firstname.lastname@example.org
