Bowling Green State University - Parent Participation Needed - October 15th deadline

Dear Parent(s),

We need your help to prepare your child’s special education teachers.  We are conducting a study to identify ways to best prepare your child’s special education teacher. By participating in this study, you will be providing invaluable information to improve the way future teachers are prepared to serve students with disabilities.  

To communicate whether or not you are interested in participating in the research study, please click the following link (or use the QR code):  


If interested, this survey should only take about 5 minutes. At a later time, you will participate in an associated focus group with other Ohio parents of children with disabilities to determine how well-prepared you feel intervention specialists are to teach your child. Focus groups will take approximately one-hour and will be scheduled November 1st-November 6th.


We appreciate your cooperation in this worthwhile endeavor and if you have any questions, please reach out to Dr. Mark Seals at [email protected] or Cell # (541-223-2873) or Dr. Mary Murray [email protected] or Cell #(419-266-3210) at any time. 

Please note, all participation is voluntary, and this study is IRB approved. You may decide to skip questions (or not do a particular task) or discontinue participation at any time without explanation or penalty. Your decision to participate will not affect your relationship with us or Bowling Green State University.  Please participate no later than October 15, 2021.
