Seeking Participants for Research Project regarding speech-language pathololgy support personnel.

I am a graduate student within the Communication Disorders and Sciences department at Eastern New Mexico University. The primary purpose of this IRB approved survey is to identify the courses SLP support personnel have taken in their undergraduate education, how confident they feel working with clients with different disorders, how many clients they have with these disorders, where they have gained the most knowledge on these disorders, and what disorders they would like to receive more information. This survey could be beneficial for undergraduate CDIS programs to gain insight into the service delivery portion of becoming a SLP support personnel.
