The Research and Evaluation Unit (REU) at the Institute on Human Development and Disability (IHDD) at the University of Georgia (UGA) and the Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities (GCDD) are seeking input from individuals with disabilities, their families, and caregivers; and key informants about the services and support needs, and gaps in services in Georgia, related to two topics - Transportation & Employment. You can participate by completing the surveys or participating in interviews/focus groups, on one or both of these topics.
Transportation and Employment Surveys
Surveys can be found by going to the GA Transportation & Employment Needs Assessment webpage. Once you are on the web page, please click on the big icons to select the survey you want to complete. The surveys should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete, and your participation is completely voluntary. You may complete the full survey or only the questions you choose. None of the questions are mandatory, and you can skip any of the questions and still continue with the survey. There are no right or wrong answers. Your responses will be kept confidential. Feedback gathered through this survey will be combined into a summary report along with other data collected for this project.
Interviews or Focus Groups
If you would like to participate in an interview or a focus group, the interest form can be found at the bottom of the GA Transportation & Employment Needs Assessment webpage. One of our study team members will contact you to determine eligibility and schedule at a time convenient for you. Interviews will take about 20-30 minutes and focus groups will take about 45-60 minutes. Individuals with disabilities or family members will receive a $20 Wal-Mart gift card as a thank you for their participation.
If you have questions or need more information about the needs assessment, please contact the Research and Evaluation Unit (REU) at IHDD by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your time and participation!
