Does anybody know of any peer-reviewed research into the use of CPA in the UK, or is anybody doing any?

The only thing I can find is a jourmnal article by Ruth Mertens that suggests it might be a 'silver bullet' with less foundation than we might hope for.  Anybody know of anything else?  Strikes me as possibly complimentary but should not be without a careful eye on a range of other research and valid methods - teachers in the UK have been dragged down many paths, many times...I am sure I don't need to tell you this!

I usually use the Jenni Back article, on NRICH I believe - about manipulatives as a tool not a crutch ... don't know if this is what you are looking for?

Take a look at the work of Bruner and Gattegno.

Also recent Nuffield Foundation research project conducted by Jenni Back, Sue Gifford and Rose Griffiths will provide a thorough bibliography.
