Survey on the Work Accommodation Needs of Young Adults with a Disability

A new survey is hoping to learn about the types of job accommodations, modifications, and benefits young people with disabilities require when transitioning from school to work.

Young adults with disabilities are asked to complete a 15 minute confidential online or mobile survey about the workplace supports they might need to help find and/or maintain employment. Students, as well as those who are employed, not employed, or looking for work are invited to participate. If you choose to take part in the survey, you will be entered into a draw to win an Apple iPad mini.

The survey is led by the Institute for Work & Health, in partnership with the National Educational Association of Disabled Students (NEADS) and McMaster University. Data will be made anonymous and analyzed by the research team to bring awareness to the types of supports that young people with disabilities require. Findings will also be shared with policy-makers, employers, and community-based organizations.
