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 ask that you share this opportunity with anyone you know who may be interested and qualified. Study participants are asked to fill out our web-based survey and share the experience of finding and holding a job as an individual with a disability. After the survey is completed, we may offer the study participant the option of engaging 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.
We hope 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.

We appreciate your help in making this study possible. When the study is completed, we will offer you a copy of the findings.
