Survey: Technology and SLT


“The more important reason is that the research itself provides an important long-run perspective on the issues that we face on a day-to-day basis. ” -Ben Bernanke

Survey research, although rooted in social research, is common and an important measurement used in research. A survey can be anything form an online form filling to paper-and-pencil feedback form to an intensive one-on-one in-depth interview. In a broad sense, survey in research encompasses any measurement procedure that involve asking questions of respondents. Surveys have their pros and cons but they do provide important empirical data for researchers at any point in their research.

SLT Researchers at Strathclyde University are undertaking two surveys to investigate to what degree clinicians are using technology in the assessment and treatment of patients with communication disorders. These surveys are designed to establish

  • What tools are available in clinics?
  • How useful do clinicians find these?
  • What barriers if any they experience?

We are focusing on use of technology in two distinct types of speech problems

  • Adult Acquired Dysarthria

Survey on Technology Usage in management of Phonological Problems in Children.

The survey results will be used to inform the development of new management tools that address the needs of patients and clinicians.

If you are currently, or have in the past, worked with either of these conditions, we invite you to complete the survey.

Remember, it is not necessary for you to be using technological aids with your clients at the moment to take part. Whether you have used technology or not, if you have worked with clients with any of the two conditions, please do participate!!!

Your point of view matters!
