Research Study: Cultural and linguistic diversity in children with complex communication needs
Posted on Wed 25 May 2022

Dr Scott Barnes and Natalie Skinner from Macquarie University are conducting a study on communication devices for people who speak more than one language at home.

 

Who can participate in the study?

Bilingual or multilingual families with a child who uses some form of communication device to participate.

 

What you need to do to participate:

If you choose to participate, the research team will make a video recording of your family talking to each other at home, and at a later date they will interview you about your experience with your communication device.

 

Why participate?

The information we collect will help to improve communication devices and speech pathology services for people who speak more than one language at home. You will also receive a $50 gift voucher for participating in each of these two activities.

 

How do I participate?
