Input please

29 May

Hey there boys and girls.

I completed my thesis today. Printed it on the fancy paper. Turned it in. Paid for the binding. EEEK. I made six copies total – 3 for the school, one for me, my mom, and my thesis advisor.

Now, I’m wondering where I could submit my research? I’ll likely submit it to the state newsletter, but I’d love to try to get it into a national publication. The title of my project is:

EXPRESSIVE LANGUAGE IN RESPONSE TO PERSONAL VERSUS GENERIC PHOTOGRAPHS: A PILOT STUDY OF PERFORMANCE IN INDIVIDUALS WITH ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE AND THOSE WITHOUT

So that is that. It’s all about stimulating detailed and complex language in persons with dementia. I had a total of 8 participants. I didn’t reach statistical significance, but I was reaching statistical significance through large effect size.

Any ideas? Please share! I am all about disseminating information and I would love to tell people about this project.

    You could present it at a conference!!! ASHA is coming up if it’s not too late!

    You’d have to rewrite portions of it, but I’d definitely submit it to ASHA or even NSSLHA and see if they’ll publish. Good luck.

      I’m publishing in MO’s prof newsletter, but I hate the limitations – I feel like it makes my methodology and results seem sketch, but I just didn’t have room to get into it! Hopefully people contact me if they have questions. And I may try elsewhere once I get settled with this move.
