Help Master's Student by Completing this Survey!

Dear, Parent or Guardian 

My name is McKenzie Steele and I am a graduate student at Utah State University studying special education. For my master’s thesis, I am conducting research on different teaching methods used in special education and parent preference. 

I would like to ask you for your participation in a survey regarding your child receiving special education services.  

To be included in this study you must meet the following criteria: 

  • Have a child between 2-5 years old  
  • Child is receiving some form of special education services  

The survey would last only about 10-15 minutes and can be taken at a time convenient to your personal schedule. Participation in the survey is entirely voluntary and there are no compensation or known/anticipated risks in this study. All information provided will be kept in utmost confidentiality and would be used only for academic purposes only.

Thank you for taking the time to assist me in my education. The data collected will provide useful information for the field of behavioral analysis.
