How do I participate in research?

We are recruiting for 2 research studies:

1) Help us test a new scale of resilience for individuals with aphasia.

2) Upcoming — we will recruit both individuals with post-stroke communication impairments (like aphasia) as well as SLPs. More information is in the Research page.

WHAT  Research participants often attend 1-3 appointments (about 1.5-2 hours long) to take tests of language and thinking, and complete questionnaires about stress, coping, and life participation. Sometimes we also ask a few  interview questions. All research activities are provided with communication support tailored to the individual.

WHERE  Most research session take place online (using Zoom) but if you live near the University of Delaware, you can choose to come to UD STAR Campus. If you live in the surrounding region (including the Philadelphia area), we may be able to come to you.
