WestEd, a non-profit educational research organization, is currently working on a number of research projects related to special education and the use of educational technology. Specifically, they are looking for child/parent pairs that meet the following criteria:

  • Families who are fluent in English, but where a different language is spoken at home. One of the following languages are preferred: Spanish, Mandarin, or a language spoken in India.

Students and parents must be able to participate in a video call session, and families will receive $150 for the 1.5-hour session.
