Attention Parents:We Need Your Help! Attention Parents: We Need Your Help!


Mother studying books about testing while using her computer


If you have a child who receives special education services, you've probably received a copy of a psychological report on your child. If you are like most parents, you had trouble understanding what the report said and what it meant.

The average psycho-educational evaluation is written at or above the 16th grade level so it isn't surprising that you were confused! The people who need to understand the findings of your child's evaluation - you and your child's teachers - say psychological reports do not provide them with helpful information.

John Hite, a friend who in graduate school, developed a survey about evaluations. If you meet the criteria to participate, please give us a hand and take the survey. The results may be used to improve psychological reports so parents and teachers understand their findings.

Criteria for participation

1. You must have a child between ages 3 and 21 AND

2. Your child had a psycho-educational or psychological evaluation within the last year OR you considered referring your child for an evaluation within the last year.

Time commitment

The survey takes approximately 15 minutes. You will be asked to read two purposely shortened reports, then answer questions about what you read. (all online). The study is anonymous - you will not be asked to provide any personal information.

Please use this link to start the study: goo.gl/qCKzoS (copy/paste into your browser if needed) or this one:

https://mspp.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_esrmV27AbMxKe7X


After you click one of the links, you'll be taken to a page that provides more information about the study and will be asked to click a consent button that you voluntarily agree to participate in the study.

Please share! We hope you will forward the link to this page about the survey to others who may qualify.

Many thanks for your help!
