Focus Groups for Individuals with Physical Disabilities


The Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) on Employment of People with Physical Disabilities is asking your help in connecting with individuals who have physical disabilities. Specifically, we are interested in talking with individuals who have physical disabilities such as cerebral palsy, arthritis, muscular dystrophy, spina Bifida, or a physical disability due to a traumatic brain injury or other neurological impairment. Anyone between the ages of 18 and 64 are encouraged to participate! We are specifically interested in finding transition age youth between the ages of 18 years and 24 to participate.

More Details

We are conducting focus groups about people with physical disabilities' work experiences including what has helped them find or keep a job as well as advance in careers. These focus groups will be held over the telephone. Participants will receive a toll free number and the information shared with the RRTC will be confidential! Participants will also receive a $50 gift card that can be used at a location of their choice.

We are asking your help to connect with individuals who would be interested in sharing their efforts to become employed as well as their work experiences. Please pass this information on to your networks. Grant Revell will assist individuals in signing up to participate. Individuals can contact him at: wgrevell@vcu.edu or by phone at: 804-828-6989.
