Faculty at Idaho State University are conducting a survey investigating the clinical practices of speech-language pathologists who work with preschool and school-age children who have speech, language and hearing disorders. The purpose of this survey is to identify trends in clinical practices so that better education of assessment and intervention practices can be provided to students. The goal of the survey is to identify areas that should be emphasized during graduate and post-graduate education and training.
This study has been approved by the Idaho State University IRB Board with approval number FY2020-30. To participate in the study, please use the following link: http://j.mp/2Z6Y5kN.
This voluntary survey should take approximately 30 minutes to complete. Thank you for participating!

My name is Qianwen Liu. I’m an occupational therapy doctorate (OTD) student from Duquesne University. I’m participating in a research project called Improving Home Program Practice for People With Language Disorders After Stroke. This project is led by Dr. Sarah E. Wallace from the speech-language pathology department and Dr. Elena V. Donoso Brown from the occupational therapy department at Duquesne University.
We are recruiting certified speech-language pathologists in the United States to collect the information on their clinical experiences when creating home practice programs for persons post-stroke. The research project has been approved by the Institutional Review Board of Duquesne University.
We are looking for a way to disseminate the survey to certified SLPs in the state. It’s an online, 15-20 minute survey which consists of multiple choice and open-ended questions.

Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists using American Sign Language Survey
Do you believe speech-language pathologists (SLPs) and audiologists (AuDs) should use American Sign Language (ASL) or some form of manual communication with clients?
As you may or may not know, ASHA has developed a position paper on ASL. We would like to examine current trends among SLPs and AuDs. Do they know ASL or manual communication/gestures? Are they using them with clients? What is their view of ASL/manual communication/gestures in therapeutic settings?
You are invited to complete an online survey examining your knowledge, use and view of ASL/manual communication/gestures. There are less than 30 questions and the survey will take about 15 minutes to complete. Your responses will be completely anonymous and confidential. No identifying information will be collected.
We are asking you to complete this survey for research. You do not have to complete it if you decide not to. Your answers will be anonymous. We will not be able to trace them back to you.
If you are a SLP, click this link to take the survey: https://appstate.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0JJrsGKABdClUeF
If you are an AuD, click this link to take the survey: https://appstate.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_72l4lgYsD2yRnXD
Please feel free to forward this e-mail to others who are eligible to take this survey. We need as many individuals to participate as possible!
Thank you for your assistance on this important research.
