Youth with specific needs

Giving assistance during the survey

It is hoped that young people will be able to read and understand the questions themselves, however they are allowed to ask an adult about the meaning of a word if it’s unclear. Leaders can explain the meaning of a question to a young person particularly applying it to their own context.

Young people with specific needs

Young people with disabilities, with literacy or translation needs, can be assisted in completing the survey.

Each question can be read aloud to them and an adult can record their answers for them if needed. However the adult cannot answer the question for them.

Ethically, the answers need to come from the young person themselves.
