A Study of the social experiences of people who are deaf or hard of hearing in social interactions.

Mar 26 2018

Holly Siegrist, M.A., M.S., Clinical Psychology Psy.D. Doctoral Candidate at California School of Professional Psychology, Alliant International University, San Francisco Campus, is doing her dissertation on the social experiences of people who are deaf or hard of hearing in social interactions. The purpose of this study is to understand social experiences that children who are deaf have had, and how those experiences affect them as adults.

She is distributing this survey to people who are 1) deaf and/or hard of hearing who are in regular contact with people who are hearing, 2) have had hearing impairments before the age of three, and 3) live in the United States and Canada. The survey will take around 25-35 minutes to complete. She understands that your time is limited, and your participation is appreciated.  Your participation would be voluntary and anonymous. There will be a drawing for five people to win a $50 Amazon gift card for participating. The odds of winning are between 3% and 7%, depending on the number of responses.

There will also be an opportunity for U.S. participants to participate in an email interview to talk more about their experiences, after they have completed the survey. You will receive a $25 Amazon gift card for participating in the email interview. If you are interested in participating in the email interview, or have questions about the study, please contact me.
