My name is Christina Kim. I am a graduate MA student at the University of Delaware, in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders. As part of my Capstone research project, I am reaching out to practicing speech-language pathologists (SLPs) across the country to gain perspective on what resources and/or materials they are using when working with culturally and diverse patients in both assessment and intervention.
I would truly appreciate your time in answering a 24 question survey linked below. The survey should take approximately 10-15 minutes. This survey is anonymous and confidential through Qualtrics. Additionally, I would be grateful if you consider forwarding this message to other SLPs, listservs and/or professional groups that you may be associated with!
The deadline for completing this survey is October 31st.
Thank you in advance for your time and support!
