Survey on Workplace Tech for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

The Center for Leadership in Disability (CLD) at Georgia State University is conducting a survey to examine considerations for workplace technology and its use by people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), such as autism and Down Syndrome. Individuals with I/DD and their family members, employers, and rehabilitation service providers (vocational rehabilitation counselors, transition coordinators, job coaches) are invited to respond.

The survey seeks ideas and feedback about:

  • whether technology in the workplace can help people with I/DD succeed at work

  • how wireless technologies and wearables can be utilized in the workplace

  • barriers to implementing and using these technologies in workplace settings

Your responses and feedback will help shape the future role that wireless technologies and wearables can play in supporting the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their employment access.

The survey will take about 15 to 30 minutes to complete. The deadline is June 30, 2019.
