This study is investigating the continuing education units (CEUs) obtained by speech language pathologists (SLPs) working in a school setting. I am collecting data via an online survey. Participation is expected to take approximately 15-20 minutes. The data collected from this study may provide information about the continuing education needs of SLPs in the schools.
Perspectives of Families and School-Based Speech-Language Pathologists on the Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC) Experience: A National Survey Exploring Similarities, Differences, and Implications for the Provision of Services
The University of Kansas
The purpose of this study is to compare the perspectives of school-based SLPs and families of children who use speech-generating devices (dedicated device or tablet/iPad). Participants are asked to complete an online questionnaire that will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. We kindly ask for SLPs’ assistance in recruiting one family to participate in the study so that we accurately compare perspectives, but completion of the survey by both parties is not a requisite. Responses are confidential and will not be shared with the other party. We hope that response data will help our field better understand how perspectives between parents and SLPs can impact service delivery.
Utah State University
You are eligible to participate if you are a licensed speech-language pathologist. Even if you are not currently seeing individuals with feeding and swallowing difficulties you are still eligible to participate as this is one focus of this study. The purpose of this survey is to gain further insight into the knowledge, skills, comfort level, and caseloads of speech-language pathologists working in this area and families receiving these services. Your participation involves a short survey that includes questions pertaining to basic demographics, your experience with feeding and swallowing disorders, caseload, and comfort level. It is estimated participation will take less than 10 minutes.
