TL2: Ethical practices website
Through the VL2 Center, deaf and hearing scientists from many research institutions are engaged in collaborative studies investigating questions about how the brain adapts to different sensory experiences and early exposure to a visual language. Many of the research projects funded by the VL2 Center involve research participants who are deaf and who use American Sign Language. With the Center’s collective experience we offer a set of guidelines for responsible and ethical conduct for researchers whose projects involve individuals who are deaf. VL2 is currently designing a website on which these principles will be presented, discussed, and sample ASL informed con sent videos will be available for download and use by researchers in the future.
