Parent/Child Survey – Vanderbilt Fatigue Scale for Children with Hearing Loss (children age 11-17) …..

Sharing: The Listening and Learning Lab at Vanderbilt is currently developing a questionnaire to identify children struggling with listening-related fatigue. We invite parents of children with or without hearing loss (age 6-17) and children with or without hearing loss (age 11-17) to fill out a brief online survey about listening fatigue. If both parent and child will participate, they must complete the questionnaire at the same time. Participants will be entered into a drawing for a $200 gift card.
