We’re inviting you to participate in a research study on science communication. We’re hoping to better understand how to share evidence-based information. Specifically, we want to know how school psychologists think and feel about using social media to share research and practice-related information.

Participation is completely voluntary, and if you agree to participate you can always change your mind and withdraw. We do not believe there are any negative consequences and participation should only take 5 to 10 minutes. Your responses will be stored on secured servers and we are not collecting identifying information. 

The survey is available at

If you have questions, feel free to contact Christina Pynn ( or Ryan Farmer ( at Oklahoma State University.”

My name is Veronica Milito and I am a doctoral candidate in the school psychology doctoral program at St. John’s University. I am writing to ask your assistance from members of your organization to participate in my research study, which focuses on the role of homework in clinical work with youth.

The purpose of this study is to gain a greater understanding of the role of homework in clinical work with youth, clinicians’ attitudes and practices as it relates to homework, what variables may predict homework use, as well as what types of homework they would assign to a hypothetical case.

Participation in this study will involve completing an online survey in which you would read a short vignette about a clinical problem and complete a brief questionnaire.

Participants will also be asked to complete a demographic and professional background questionnaire. It is anticipated that participation will take approximately 20 minutes.

Thank you so much for your time.

I hope this email finds you well. My name is Pete Gladstone, and I am a doctoral student of school psychology at the University of Denver. I am conducting a survey study that investigates school psychologists’ knowledge of, training in, and use o evidence-based self-determination interventions for students with disabilities.

This survey is only meant to be completed by school psychologists who are currently practicing at least two (2) days per week in middle and/or high schools. If you are a school psychologist currently practicing in middle/high schools, I would sincerely appreciate your participation in this survey For the first 120 participants, a $1 donation will be made to the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities in your honor. Your response is extremely valuable, as it will help to guide the way that school psychologists are prepared to help students with disabilities achieve their postsecondary goals.

The survey is voluntary and confidential, and should take approximately six (6) minutes. The research conducted in this study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) at the University of Denver (DU). There are no foreseeable significant risks to participating in this study.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the researcher, Pete Gladstone, at Or, you may contact the dissertation chair, Devadrita Talapatra, Ph.D., at If you have any questions about the IRB process at DU, please contact Ms. Mary Travis at
