Research Opportunity Request from UBC

Alisa Bridger is a doctoral student in Counselling Psychology at UBC. Alisa wears many hats: she is a PhD student; a counselling psychologist in the public school system; and most important of all, she is the mother of three children, two of whom are hard of hearing. Alisa’s doctoral research is on the experience of hard of hearing youth as they transition from elementary to secondary school.

Please see Alisa’s  letter of introduction addressed to TDHHs as well as a flyer for parents and students. On behalf of Alisa and the supervising Team at UBC, we thank you for sharing with your students and we thank the students for participating.
