The Learning Lab for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln has reached out to us asking for any families interested in participating in a study they’re currently working on titled, Project Pathways. The purpose of this study is to assess the reading and writing profiles of students with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Participants must be middle or high school students (ages 13-21 years) with intellectual and developmental disabilities and must be fluent in English and have internet access to participate. Your children would be completing a series of standardized reading, writing, and cognitive tasks that assess their literacy and learning skills. Participation is conducted entirely via Zoom and will take approximately two hours, however, participation can be spread over multiple days if needed. Your children would also receive a $20 gift card for completing the study.
If you would like your child to participate in this research project let us know and we can pass along your contact information or you may contact their office directly at (402) 472-3243 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
