Be part of an important research study...

A Study on the Lived Experiences of Employees with Visual Impairments

*         Do you have a visual impairment?

*         Are you actively working?

*         Have you experienced a negative attitude from your employer?

If you answered YES to these questions, you may be eligible to participate in this research.

The purpose of this study is to explore, understand, and describe how employees with visual impairments process and overcome perceived negative employer attitudes. For the purpose of this study, the term "negative employer attitude" will be described in terms of your perception of employers' negative actions or interactions. You will have the opportunity to discuss your experiences. Your participation in this study, and any identifiable personal information you provide, will be kept confidential.

Interviews will be held over the phone or in person at:
