Meghan Gottlieb, Research Coordinator at Washington University in St. Louis in the Program in Occupational Therapy is seeking assistance in finding people with disabilities that are employed. Washington University in St. Louis is teaming up with the Region 7 Disability and Business Technical Assistance Center to work together on a study of people with disabilities who are successfully employed.
We are asking anyone with a disability (mobility and/or sensory) who has been at their current job for the last 2 years, who is working at least 20 hours per week, and who is working in either Missouri, Kansas, Iowa or Nebraska to fill out a web-based survey and share the experience of finding and holding a job as an individual with a disability (Washington University can assist any participant who does not have access to a computer or prefers completing the survey via telephone). After the survey is completed, they may offer the participant the option of participating in a videotaped interview provided that both employee and employer agree to share more information. All participants will be reimbursed for their time and effort.
The hope is that this study will provide information on what task modifications, assistive technologies, personal assistance, built environmental features, and/or worksite accommodations help individuals with disabilities to be successful employees. The information gathered will not reflect back on the accessibility or receptivity of their company in any way.
