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 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:
