Research topic: Exploring the relationship between relative school starting age, emotional development and ADHD diagnosis in England.
I hope to explore associations between relative school starting age and children’s emotional development in Reception class, as well as discover whether discrepancies exist between parents and teachers’ perceptions and clinical diagnosis. Then, I will investigate how relative school starting age may be associated with trajectories of academic and socioemotional development into mid-to-late-adolescence and how these trajectories may vary according to indicators of emotional development in the Reception year, gender, maternal education and birth cohort.
