One of the challenges faced by researchers is recruiting culturally deaf participants. To help ease recruitment, VL2 is designing a web-based volunteer program.

With this, deaf adults can volunteer online to become research projects participants, and parents of deaf children can volunteer on behalf of their children to become research participants.

The VL2 Research Volunteer Program includes a brief online background questionnaire to help researchers define and select subgroups. These subgroups are of a broader deaf population with specific characteristics for inclusion in proposed studies.

Address information submitted to the database may also be used to disseminate valuable information about VL2 research and upcoming events of interest to a broad national constituency of deaf individuals and their families.
