Caregivers of children with special healthcare needs

Vanderbilt University’s Special Education dept. is currently seeking participants, caregivers of children ages 2-22 who have special health-care needs. Especially, children with disabilities who also present with special health-care needs. Our goal is to gather information on caregivers’ perspectives and experiences with the transition process from the hospital to the school for children with complex healthcare needs. To gather such information, we are conducting an anonymous, web-based survey, which should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at or contact us directly at Maggie Davis (graduate student; and Alexandra Da Fonte (faculty; with your questions or requests. For additional information or to report concerns, please feel free to contact the Vanderbilt University Institutional Review Board Office at: 615.322.2918 or toll-free at: 866.224.8273.
