Tots 'n Tech Needs Your Help!
Apr 18, 2006
The Tots 'n Tech Research Institute (TnT) is an inter-university collaboration between Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA and Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ. TnT conducts a national research program about use of assistive technology (AT) to enhance the development of infants and toddlers with disabilities. A major component of the TnT's mission is to produce new knowledge and information about AT use and practices and, specifically, about the ways in which AT may optimize children's development and learning. TnT is currently conducting two surveys to learn more about how Assistive Technology (AT) may have been helpful to (1) parents and (2) infants and toddlers.
The first survey, entitled "Family Survey," seeks information from parents whose children are under the age of three years on what kinds of training and experience the parents have had with AT. The second survey, the "Early Intervention Provider Survey," seeks information from multidisciplinary providers who work in early intervention at least one day per week to learn more about how AT may have been helpful to infants and toddlers. If you qualify as either a parent or a provider, please take a few minutes to respond to the appropriate survey.
