Hello teachers! I am an intervention specialist from Ohio working on my Master's research thesis. I am researching the effects that prior-disability related training has on general education teacher attitudes toward inclusion. I have to survey teachers (general ed) in an anonymous, short survey found here: https://qtrial.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_e3EEHHIQAhW1P2Q I attend Xavier University, and would love to have as many people participate as possible! If you could take 10 minutes of your crazy busy lives and help me, I would greatly appreciate it!
