The CALM study began in 2014 and concluded in late 2022. Join us for a day of discussing our findings.
At the meeting, members of the CALM team will summarise key insights from the study covering a range of topics including the role of cognition, behaviour, brain development, and genetics in learning. We will also discuss how our findings can inform practice and policy towards building more inclusive schools. We are looking forward to hearing about your insights on what the outcomes might mean for how to ensure that children fulfil their potential and your own experiences of being involved in the study.
