Educational Inclusion Survey through Walsh University

This survey asks questions related to special education from parents’ point of view. The purpose of this research project is to help to better serve families who have children with special needs in school. The end goal is to inform schools about the needs/wants of students and families in the areas of communication, access to information about special education, thoughts on inclusion, and implementation of parent support groups/educational seminars if wanted/needed.

Should you choose to participate, you may opt to be entered into a raffle for a $50 Amazon gift card (two gift cards will be sent out in May, when the study is complete). When you click the link below you will be taken to an introduction that explains the study in more depth and requests your consent to participate.
