Participants Still Needed to Complete an Employment Survey

Invitation to Participate in StudyThe VCU-RRTC on Employment of People with Physical Disabilities is still looking for people with physical disabilities to complete an online survey on barriers and supports to employment. We want to know about barriers to employment as well as resources that are needed to support work / career goals. In addition, we are interested in knowing how people with physical disabilities find information on employment services and supports. The target groups for the study are:

  • Adults with cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, spina bifida, or other physical disabilities

To be eligible to participate, you must be between the ages of 18 and 65, a U.S. citizen, be able to provide legal consent, and be a member of one of the targeted groups above.

Participants will complete an online survey requiring approximately 20 minutes. One hundred participants will be randomly selected to receive a $25 gift card. However, there is no guarantee that everyone who completes the survey will be selected to receive the gift card.

If you are interested in participating, the VCU-RRTC needs your consent. You may do this by following the link below to read more about the study, review the survey questions, and give your consent.
