Call for Survey Participants: How Are We Evaluating Preschoolers Who Are Deaf/Hard of Hearing?

Survey Flyer

Call for Survey Participants - This is a research project through the Department of Special Education and Multiple Abilities in the College of Education at the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, AL.

If you are a/an school-based speech-language pathologist, special education teacher, early childhood special education teacher, or teacher of the deaf who serves and/or evaluates preschoolers for special education eligibility, we want to hear from you! We are interested in learning about how you evaluate and determine initial special education eligibility for preschoolers who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) using listening and spoken language (LSL) as their communication mode. We recognize that hearing loss is a low-incidence disability. It is not necessary for you to have evaluated a preschooler who is DHH in the past to complete this survey. Rather, evaluating preschoolers for special education eligibility determinations should be part of your responsibilities, so that you may have the opportunity to evaluate a preschooler who is DHH in the future.

This anonymous survey will take approximately 15 – 25 minutes to complete. Respondents can enter to win one of ten $25 Amazon Gift Cards by sharing their contact information (optional). If you have questions about whether this survey is for you, please email Kameron Carden at Thank you!
