Survey title: The assessment and management of discourse-level deficits in paediatric brain injury: a survey of current practice in Australia, New Zealand, UK, USA, Canada, and the Asia Pacific.

Ethics approval/reference number:  Curtin University Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) has approved this study (HREC number HRE2016-0349-07).

Study information and eligibility: This study aims to understand current assessment and treatment practices of Speech Pathologists who target discourse-level impairments in child/adolescent acquired brain injury (ABI). If you are a speech pathologist in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, America, Canada, and the Asia Pacific region (e.g. Hong Kong, Singapore) who has worked with children or adolescents with an ABI, we would like to invite you to participate in an online survey. This project will investigate current assessment and intervention practices used to manage discourse-level impairments in this population.
