While I was (and am still a little) curious to know whether Hannah is technically a person with a disability, I’ve known since the moment I learned of her plans to join our family that she would be influenced by disability. We focus on the positives, but I know there will be many times that she, too, is negatively impacted by ableism. All of our family members have been affected and if you have a loved one with a disability, you probably have been too.
The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) is conducting a research study with Easter Seals to better understand the everyday influences of a family member’s disability. I’m really interested in their findings, but as I’m unfortunately very aware of in my own dissertation study-the data collection proceeds the results. If you’d like to participate in this study. The information is below. I did it and it only takes a few minutes.
The American Association of People with Disabilities, in partnership with Easter Seals, has retained/hired national polling firm Harris Interactive to conduct a survey about how family members are affected by disability. Millions of American families today have someone in their family with a disability; by taking part in this research you are helping raise awareness of the types of issues you and your family encounter.
