Request for support – Parental questionnaire 

Posted in News

Please see below a request for support  from a Masters study

A Masters student is seeking support with her study of exploring the perceived impact of spoken language choice in multilingual families of deaf children. She has shared ‘The professionals’ questionnaire has had many responses and will be closed soon. However, the parental participation has been low and I would be very grateful if you could encourage parents you know or work with to participate. The experiences and voices of families are valuable in research and when planning support for families of D/deaf children.”

Please share the text and link below with suitable families. Thank you for your time and support. Lotta Clarke

To send to parents:

Dear parents and carers

I would like to invite you to participate in a research study exploring the perceived impact of spoken language choice in deaf or hard of hearing spoken multilingual children and young people.

I have attached an online questionnaire link below, this questionnaire forms a part of a research project by me, Lotta Clarke at the University of Birmingham, with the aim to reach as many multilingual families across the UK as possible. To take part, you must be a parent or a carer of a D/deaf or hard of hearing child or young person and your family must use one or more spoken languages, apart from English.

In completing the questionnaire, you are helping the research by providing valuable information about parents’ opinions and experiences and you have the chance to win a £20 Amazon voucher.
