Seeking Students for Research Study

Students who are between the ages of 16 and 22 years who are braille
readers and users of assistive technology are needed for a study.
This study will explore how you use both braille and electronic
information for classroom work, and how you learned these literacy
practices. The purpose of this research will be to add to our
understanding of the current role of both hard-copy (paper) braille
and use of electronic access to information by people who are blind
from ages 16-22, and your attitudes and perceptions about both
braille and technology. This information will inform how we prepare
pre-service teachers to instruct young braille readers.

If you are interested in participating in this study or getting more
information, please contact me via email at  fmd22 at pitt.edu, by
calling 412-521-5797, or by writing to me at:
Frances Mary D'Andrea

University of Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh PA 15260

If you are under 18, you MUST have your parents' or guardians'
permission. A consent form will be send to you in braille or
electronically after you verify that you are:
1. between the ages of 16-22
2. a student enrolled in school
3. a braille reader
4. a user of electronic assistive technology devices, hardware, or software.
If you are under 18, your parents will also receive a consent form
that must be signed before you can participate.

Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for your interest!
