Language and Literacy Needs

My name is Keisey Fumero and I am a doctoral student at Florida State University.

I am currently working on finding ways to better support speech-language pathologists, reading specialists, and teachers as they address the language and literacy needs of their students.

To that end, I have developed a survey aimed at understanding professionals' background knowledge regarding morphological awareness and its role in language and literacy.

I am trying to reach as many SLPs, SLPAs, reading specialists, and teachers across the country, and I could use your help in spreading awareness of this research opportunity. If you are a Speech-Language Pathologist, Speech-Language Pathologist Assistant, English and Language Arts teacher, Reading Specialists, or Special Education Teacher you are invited to participate in this survey study aimed at understanding professionals' background knowledge regarding morphological awareness and its role in language and literacy.

This survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete:
