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

Moving from school or training into the workforce is a challenge for any young person, let alone for a young adult with a disability. Help us understand the types of job accommodations and benefits you need to find and maintain employment. A study is being conducted on the work accommodation needs of young adults living with a disability by the Institute for Work and Health.

We would like to learn more about your needs in the workplace including your requirement for job accommodations, modifications and supports. We would like to hear from young adults with a disability or health condition who are either:

  • Currently in school, education or a training program OR
  • Have finished their education or training in the past five years, including those who are employed and those who are not working.

This online survey takes about 15-20 minutes to complete. This survey can also be completed over the phone or by mail. To thank you for your time, all participants will be entered into a draw for an Apple iPad.

The survey is co-led by the Institute for Work & Health and McMaster University, with the collaboration of the National Educational Association of Disabled Students (NEADS). The research team is attempting to understand the types of supports that young people with disabilities need to successfully move from school to work. Our findings will be shared with policy-makers, employers, and community-based organizations. Information about your work experiences that we collect will be kept separate from any information that might identify you.

Please contact the study coordinator if you have any questions or require assistance completing the survey:
