Invitation to Participate In An Employment Study

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. Visit www.worksupport.com/employment to read more about the study, review the survey questions, and give your consent. 

If you have questions or need special accommodations to participate in the study, please contact:

This research is sponsored by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (#H133B130011) and has been approved by VCU’s Institutional Review Board.
