Parents of Children with Hearing Loss: Experience with Tele-Intervention/ Tele-Therapy Services


This survey is for parents of children with hearing loss who have participated in therapy by using distance technology to form a connection between geographic locations. This includes the use of a computer, web-camera and an internet connection. This type of service may be referred to as Tele-Intervention, Tele-Practice, Tele-Therapy, Long-distance therapy, On-line therapy or another similar name. For the purposes of this survey the term tele-intervention will be used.

If you and your child have chosen to participate in this type of therapy and your goals are to increase your child’s auditory/ listening and spoken language skills, we want to know what you think. Please take a few minutes to answer the following questions about your experience. The survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete.

The information you share will be anonymous and confidential. The information obtained will be summarized and reported in an upcoming publication of the Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

We appreciate your time in helping us explore and improve the use of technology for providing services to families of children with hearing loss. Thank you.
