Research Policy

NSLHA will post research participant recruitment flyers on its website if all of the following conditions are met.

Responsibility for the design, conduct and dissemination of the research rests solely with the investigator(s).

  1. Investigator or key personnel on the project must be a NSLHA member in good standing.
  2. Project must have IRB approval. Formal approval must be clearly visible on the posted flyer (e.g., IRB dated stamp of approval) or clearly indicated by the investigators using other recruitment means (e.g. videos).
  3. Contact information must be clearly visible on the posted recruitment materials.
  4. Investigators agree to submit their research findings for presentation at the annual NSLHA Convention.
  5. When feasible to do so (e.g. when results are published), investigators agree to provide a brief written summary of key research findings for NSLHA to share with the membership via its website.

Flyers will be removed from the website at the earliest time point that reflects: 1) the IRB expiration date listed on the IRB approval; 2) one year after posting; or 3) the request to do so by the investigator.

Management of Depression and Anxiety in Patients with Aphasia by Speech Language Pathologists

You are invited to participate in a research project conducted by an undergraduate research fellow in the Communication Disorders Department at the University of Nebraska at Kearney, under the direction of Dr. Ladan Ghazi Saidi. The study, Management of Depression and Anxiety in Patients with Aphasia by Speech Language Pathologists is approved by the University of Nebraska at Kearney Undergraduate Research Fellows Advisors Board (IRB #031021-1).

Participate in the study.

  • A graduate student in the Communication Sciences and Disorders Department at Wichita State University is conducting a thesis research project under the direction of Dr. Karissa Marble-Flint. The study is approved by the Wichita State University Institutional Review Board (IRB #4863), and it is being conducted in agreement with approval from the IRBs at the University of Nebraska at Kearney and the University of Central Missouri. The purpose of the survey is: 1) increase the research base in the area of disciplinary literacy, specific to the Midwest, and 2) provide information on Midwest SLPs' provision of literacy services to students in schools. Participants will be entered into a drawing to win one of five $10 Amazon gift cards; names will be drawn and the winners will be announced by May 2021. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Karissa Marble-Flint at karissa.marble-flint@wichita.edu, (316) 978-6356; or contact at jcchavira@ shockers.wichita.edu.

Boys Town National Research Hospital Audibility, Perception, and Cognition (APC) Lab

Boys Town National Research Hospital wants to learn how children understand and focus on speech in noisy environments. We are inviting children ages 6 to 12 years old with bilateral hearing loss or normal hearing to participate in our study.  Learn more about our lab and the study here.

Boys Town National Research Hospital Translational Auditory Physiology and Perception (TAPP) Lab

Our study is trying to develop better ways to diagnose, monitor and treat ear infections and fluid in the ears and to do this, we also need to assess healthy ears for comparison. We are looking for children from primarily English-speaking homes who are 6 months to 3 years of age with typical hearing, no ear infections or fluid in the last 12 months, and no history of ear surgery or ear tubes. The study involves 1 visit of 1-2 hours during which children will play listening games or sit quietly while watching videos.
