University of Kansas Research & Training Center on Independent Living Survey

What helps you get outside of your home to do things in the community?

Our team at the University of Kansas Research & Training Center on Independent Living is doing research to help people with physical disabilities be as involved in their communities as they would like to be. We think that LIVING in the community may be different from PARTICIPATING as an active and equal member of the community.
Our goal is to learn what type of knowledge or skills consumers need to participate in their communities, so that we can create a program to provide them with the resources to get out and about.

For example, do people with disabilities need:
• Information about laws that protect their rights?
• Skills to advocate for their rights?
• Ideas for community resources that can help them participate?
• Other information or skills?

If you are 18 years or older, please use the link below to complete the survey so that we can learn what you need (if you are a person with a physical disability) or what your consumers need (if you provide direct services at a Center for Independent Living). The survey should take about 20 minutes to complete.
In addition to completing the survey yourself, we would appreciate your help reaching out to others. If you are a CIL director or are in a direct service position, please share this page and the survey link below with one or more consumers at your CIL. This will help us gather a variety of opinions on what skills and information people need to participate in their community.

To thank you, we’re offering the chance to enter a drawing for one of ten $100 gift cards for those who provide their contact information on the survey form. Five gift cards will be reserved for CIL staff and directors and five gift cards will be reserved for consumers. Survey responses will be collected until Friday, December 15th.

If you have any questions, you may contact Dot Nary, Asst. Research Professor, or Hayley Burghart, Project Coordinator, at the Research and Training Center on Independent Living, University of Kansas. Thanks for your assistance!
