Exploring the dimensions to speech and language telepractice influencing outcomes for pediatric clients (≤ 16 years)

Posted by | Administration Officer | Date: 12 Feb 2018 | 14:31pm

Melissa Peter is a second year PhD candidate and a speech-language pathologist exploring factors influencing speech pathology services for children 16 years of age and under, delivered through telepractice from a client family and speech-language clinician’s perspective. At the current time we have received responses from around the world and would like to include respondents from regions we have not yet received responses from. There are 2 components to this study and they are described below:

Recruitment for clients who have had at least one speech and language treatment session via telepractice

Participants in this study should be:

  • Family member/caregiver of a client who has had at least one session of speech therapy via telepractice with a qualified speech-language pathologist. The child should have been 16 years or under at the time he/she was receiving the service
  • Be fluent in English Recruitment for speech and language clinicians

Recruitment for speech and language clinicians

Participants in this study should be:

  • Fully qualified speech-language pathologists or speech-language therapists
  • Familiar with but having no experience with speech and language services delivered to children 16 years and under through telepractice
  • Speech-language pathologists having had at least one session of speech therapy with a child 16 years and under via telepractice
  • Fluent in English

Access to both surveys is via two different online links. Responses will be anonymous and therefore unidentifiable. If you would like to receive more information about both or one component of the research study and are willing for the clients and/or clinicians in your agency to participate, could you kindly reply to Melissa Peter or to Michelle Lincoln

We will then proceed to send you the Participant Information Statement, with the corresponding link to the Consent Form and online survey. Agencies considering the client component of the study will be sent a summary of questions that are being asked for their information.

Thank you for considering this request.

With sincere appreciation

Michelle Lincoln
