My name is Rebecca Simoni, and I am a doctoral candidate in the School-Community Psychology program at Hofstra University. I am in the process of completing a dissertation project under the supervision of Dr. Kimberly Gilbert, concerning the consistency between research and practice of interventions with students with an autism spectrum disorder.
Participation in this survey is voluntary, and you are permitted to withdraw at any time. As participants in this research project, you will be asked to complete an online survey. The survey will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. There are no known risks to participating in this study. Your responses are confidential and will not be identified with any personal information. This research will help to bridge the gap between research and practice in schools, specifically for students with autism. This is especially critical because students with autism are continually being mainstreamed into the public school system.
As compensation for participation in this project, all participants have the opportunity to provide their email address to enter a raffle to win a $200 Starbucks gift card. Email addresses will not be associated with survey data and will only be used to contact the raffle winner, once all data has been compiled.
If you have any questions or concerns, the researchers can be contacted as follows:

You are invited to participate in a collaborative research study between school psychology researchers in the state of New York. The primary researchers include Dr. Elizabeth M. Power (The College of Saint Rose), Mr. Gary Schaffer (Niagara University), Dr. Amy Fisk (SUNY Geneseo) and their research team.
We are looking to gain information from those who were trained in school psychology, who work in traditional (e.g., public schools) and nontraditional (e.g., state and community agencies, hospitals, private practice) settings across the country to better understand the roles and responsibilities and choices to work in respective settings. Our primary goal is to explore the roles and responsibilities of applied school psychologists in alternative practice settings and why practitioners of school psychology chose these settings over the public schools. A secondary goal is to understand whether the everyday duties of nontraditional school psychologists are aligned with the roles and responsibilities currently purported by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) Practice Model compared to school psychologists in traditional public school settings.
We believe that this data will yield implications for school psychologist graduate training programs in guiding students to careers that align with their experience and interests. We hope to gain your expertise as school psychologists who work across various states. There are no reasonably foreseeable risks involved in this study. Please click on the link below to take our survey.

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 https://udenver.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_4Pfc0ufJesCnwFv. 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 email@example.com.
