Georgia Tech and Fordham University Seeking Participants for Collaborative Research Project on the Workplace and Adults with Disabilities

Date Posted: 07/26/2011

The Center for Assistive Technology and Environmental Access (CATEA) at Georgia Tech in collaboration with Fordham University is trying to learn more about how adults with disabilities adapt to the workplace environment. Our goal is to find out about difficulties experienced in the workplace by adults with disabilities and the accommodations used to cope with these challenges.

To accomplish our goal, we need volunteers to fill out a survey asking questions related to your workplace (whether you work from home or in an office), difficulties experienced at work because of a disability, and your overall well-being.

If you choose to participate in the study, you will be asked to fill out an electronic survey. The survey should take approximately 30 minutes to complete and you have the option of saving your work and returning to the survey at a later time.

Please note that your identity will be kept completely confidential. The information you provide will be important in helping us learn about the strategies people with disabilities use to accomplish work tasks.

If you would like to participate in the survey, visit the Specific Computer Problems & Accommodations survey website.

If you have any questions, please contact Michelle Paggi at mpaggi@fordham.edu.
