Student Research Assistance Needed in the Area of Autism
A speech-language pathology graduate student at Kean University is completing a master's thesis on the "Knowledge of SLP Graduate Students in Regard to Identifying and Addressing Sensory Integration Dysfunction in Children with Autism."
Student input is needed to gather information on how much SLP graduate students know about sensory integration dysfunction in this population, including being able to identify the telltale characteristics, and to possibly address them appropriately if warranted. Results of the study may indicate a need for further instruction about sensory integration dysfunction in SLP graduate programs.
Visit Qualtrics.com to begin the survey.
