Welcome to my survey

Thank you for participating in this survey. Your feedback is important.
 
This study is designed to investigate how Deaf Cochlear Implant users experience working with Sign Language Interpreters in Ireland. Your participation is voluntary. For the purpose of this research, you would have to be a Deaf adult, living in Ireland, who uses ISL and has been implanted with a CI after the age of 18. 

The study is being carried by Heidi Veldheer, a senior sophister student on the Bachelor in Deaf Studies, Trinity College Dublin. Her academic supervisor is Ms Carmel Grehan.
 
If you agree to participate, this will involve you answering 18 written questions, which is not expected to take longer than 20 minutes and you can withdraw at any time. There is also a video available with a translation of the questions in ISL, as per the link provided: https://vimeo.com/384739473 (password: Cochlear)
 
There are no known risks involved in taking part in this research, however it may lead you to reflect on challenges you might have experienced with access to interpreters.

As this is the first research of its kind in Ireland, your participation could be beneficial to you in that it might create a better understanding of the interpreting needs of Deaf adults with a Cochlear Implant.
This research may benefit people working in various disciplines, such as interpreting, medical fields and education as they can gain more knowledge in relation to Cochlear Implants and interpreting needs.

The survey will be anonymous therefore no personal data will need to be stored.

If you have any questions about this research, you can contact me, email: veldheeh@tcd.ie or you can contact my supervisor to seek further clarification and information: Ms. Carmel Grehan, email: cgrehan@tcd.ie
