Invitation to Participate in an Employment Study (VA UCEDD/LEND)

April 4, 2016

The Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) is conducting a study of adults with physical disabilities.  We want to know about your barriers to employment as well as resources that you need to support your work / career goals.  In addition, we are interested in knowing how you find information on employment services and supports. The target groups for the study are:

  • Adults with cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, 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.
