Experiencing Diverse Sex Development – Info for parents

Experiencing Diverse Sex Development – Info for parents

Has your child experienced diverse sex development? Or was your child born with atypical sex features?

If this sounds like you, and your son / daughter is aged 25 years or younger, then you could take part in this research project.

    Our project focuses on your experiences and views:
  • We plan to listen to parents’ views and experiences of raising a child whose sex development has been different from others.
  • We also plan to listen to young people whose sex development has been different from others.

If you choose to take part in a research interview you will, for example, be asked to tell a bit about yourself as a parent, what kind of support you have received related to your child’s development and how you think the support you received could have been better.

The goal of the research is to inform doctors and other professionals about the experiences of young people and their parents. We hope this research will contribute to improving care for young people and their families. We hope this research will make it easier for adults to support young people with diverse sex development.
