Research

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.

Speech-Language pathologist service & Provider survey (SPS) for Pediatric SLPs

You are invited to participate in a research study being conducted by investigators from The University of Iowa.

The purpose of the study is to collect survey information on the professional preparation of speech-language pathologists in the area of aural rehabilitation for children (i.e., birth to 18 years). Studies like this one are important in providing insight into current professional preparation to best serve the deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) patient population.

We encourage you to ask questions. If you have any questions about the research study itself, please contact: Lindsey Carter or Elizabeth Walker at [email protected] or (319)467-4304 in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Iowa.

Thank you very much for your consideration of this research study.

BOYS TOWN NATIONAL RESEARCH HOSPITAL CURRENT RESEARCH

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.
