Ways for Clinicians to Get Involved
Are you an SLP interested in clinical research or evidence-based practice?
Here are a few ways you can get involved and support our research:
1. See What We’re Doing
Check out our current research here. Give us a call or drop us an email for more information.
2. Work with Us
Student clinicians deliver treatment in some of our studies. We need supervisors to support that work. If you have 3 or more years of experience, hold your ASHA CCC’s, and are licensed in Delaware, we’d be glad to talk with you about ways you can be involved in supervision during a research program.
3. Refer Clients
Our research depends on referrals of children who would benefit from language intervention. These may be children who are on your caseload or children who you have concerns about, but who are not currently receiving services. Often children who have just been dismissed or who just missed the cutoff to qualify for services are still eligible for our treatment studies. Children who receive services in the academic year but don’t qualify for ESY may be especially appropriate for our summer programs. Please contact us if you are willing to share fliers with families and other clinicians.
4. Share Your Questions
We would like to know what your challenges are in delivering high quality evidence-based treatment in the areas of morphology and syntax. Our research is most authentic and most helpful when it supports your work. Complete the Clinical Practice Question form to let us know what you are struggling with in your practice. We will acknowledge that we heard from you and, if possible, share what we already know about the topic. We may also reach out to integrate your questions into upcoming research projects. Please remember that our main focus is on grammar learning in children with language impairment and we mostly work with kids ages 3–9. We are best equipped to support questions in this area.
