Dear Training Participant,

We are conducting a study on the impact of our training program on practices of early intervention providers. This study is part of the work of the Early Intervention Training Program at the University of Illinois. For purposes of this study, we would like to invite you to participate by completing the training evaluation form related to this training as part of the study.

The evaluation can be completed in approximately 5-10 minutes. You do not have to answer any of the questions that you do not wish to answer. You will not be required to include your name in the form. Furthermore, we will be aggregating the data from the completed evaluation and analyzing them as a group. Upon completion of the project, we will destroy all the individual data collected from this study. Results of this study will be used for a final report due to the Illinois Department of Human Services, journal articles, and conference presentations. In any publication or public presentations related to this study, pseudonyms will be substituted for any identifying information.

We want to assure you that information derived from your completed evaluation forms and artifacts will be held in strictest confidence, and that you may withdraw from the study at any time without penalty. Your participation in this project is completely voluntary and your choice to participate or not will not impact your current and future participation in any trainings offered by EITP, your job, and your status in our field. We do not anticipate any risk to this study greater than normal life and we anticipate that this project will contribute to the improvement of training in the area of early intervention.
