Recruitment Survey
RequiredRequired Question(s)
The coronavirus pandemic has increased concerns around people with disabilities' safety and access to support while receiving healthcare. Some people believe that conserving adults with developmental disabilities will protect them. Conservatorship is when a court rules that a person with a disability cannot make decisions on their own and appoints someone else to make the decisions for them.

Fewer people are aware of how people with developmental disabilities and their families can use supported decision-making to ensure that they understand and participate in their health care.

Disability Voices United will be providing training for parents in the coming months on supported decision-making, particularly in health care. To develop these trainings, we are hosting a Supported Decision-Making Focus Group for parents of teenagers and young adults with developmental disabilities who are not conserved.

The focus group will be held on July 25, 2020, from 2-4 p.m.

During these two-hour focus groups, we will be asking questions of the participants and asking them for their honest answers. We will also be asking parents to give us feedback on materials about supported decision-making. No questions will be personal and everything said will be confidential.

This survey is to find eligible parents of people with developmental disabilities for these focus group sessions. Here are important things to note before taking this survey:
1. The focus group is ONLY for parents of children and adults with developmental disabilities over the age of 12 who are not conserved. Only one parent from each family can participate.
2. The focus group will be virtual and requires a computer and Zoom. 

3. You must be available to participate at a specified time. If you qualify, you will receive date and time options for participating. 
4. Each parent will receive a $25 Target e-gift card.
