We are recruiting speech-language pathologists with experience working with the social communication skills of school-aged children (preschool through 8th grade). We are interested in understanding the current approaches used by SLPs for identifying and assessing social communication deficits in school-aged children.

The study involves the completion of an online questionnaire. You are asked to identify the tools and approaches you use to identify and assess social communication deficits. The questionnaire should take 15 to 20 minutes to complete. You will participate anonymously, unless you elect to provide contact information for future follow-up studies. The survey can be completed anywhere you have access to the Internet. By completing the questionnaire, you are consenting to participate in the study.

If you meet the above criteria and would like to participate in this study, please read the attached letter of informed consent and then follow the link below to the online questionnaire. While this link may not be posted to any other organization or institutional message boards, bulletin boards, etc., if you have any eligible colleagues who may be interested in participating, we would appreciate you forwarding this link to them.

The document of informed consent is attached for your review. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Kristen Izaryk at kizaryk@ju.edu.
