Today I worked on calling and scheduling 8 year olds for the SRF study. I was able to schedule 4 participants today, and one other who was a maybe and whose parents will be calling me back once they figure out their schedule.
So far calling has been very successful. I've been able to keep a pretty busy schedule with participants, which is great. I like to try to fit in at least two or three participants per week. It seems like we're making really great progress with the 8 year old group. I thought it would be a lot more difficult to schedule this age group, but so far the families have all been very cooperative and willing to participate. I probably have more families saying that they'd like to participate, but they just have too much on their plate when I call for 8 year olds, in comparison to 6-year old calling. Still, I've been able to have a lot of families commit to coming in.
There have also been a lot of siblings being tested. We aren't really calling to schedule 4 or 6 year olds, so it helps to use siblings to get a couple more participants. Overall, things are running very smoothly. I'm looking forward to running the three sessions I have next week!
