Deaf Transition Assessment Survey:

Professionals who serve deaf and hard of hearing students/clients, are you interested in participating in a University of Oklahoma survey about transition assessment knowledge? I am studying this topic and need your input!!!!

This study is being conducted to assess professional’s knowledge of the transition assessments you use with deaf and hard of hearing individuals. You were selected as a possible participant because of your involvement with this population. Participants must be over the age of 18 to participate in the study and work with deaf or hard of hearing students/clients.

By consenting to participate in this study, your time commitment will be about 20 minutes. You are asked to respond to all questions, but you will have the option to answer text box information with “not applicable”. Participation is voluntary, and you can exit the survey at any point.

Thank you for your consideration for participating in this study! If you would like more information or have any questions about the purpose of the study or about participation in this study, please do not hesitate to ask. I am available through email at mreynolds@ou.edu.
