Call for Participants: PhD Research study of Irish Sign Language and Families with d/Deaf Children

My name is Caitríona O'Brien. I am a PhD researcher in the Centre for Deaf Studies, Trinity College Dublin. My research looks at Irish Sign Language (ISL) and families with a deaf child (or deaf children).

I am recruiting!

I am looking for parents with a deaf child, in families that are learning, or use, ISL and in families that are not learning, or do not use, ISL.

I am also looking for ISL teachers who teach families with a deaf child.

If you agree to participate, I will ask you to take part in an interview or observation.

If you know anyone who might be interested in taking part in the research, I would be very grateful if you could let them know about it.

If you have any questions, would like further information, or might be interested in taking part, feel free to contact me at
