Study title: Perspectives from the disability community: an exploration of identity, stigma, and social support

  *   All NFB members who are at least 18 years old and have a physical disability are invited to participate in an approximately 12-minute survey that contains questions regarding demographic and disability-related information as well as questions about social support, stigma, and your attitudes towards disability.
  *   If you are at least 18 years old and have a physical disability, and would like to participate in this research, please complete the survey at: https://berkeley.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0ecaJzOuer6vaCh
  *    This research is being conducted by an NFB member but this project is not affiliated with the NFB.
  *   Background: Most psychological research on disability considers the attitudes of non-disabled people towards disability rather than perspectives of people with disabilities. This is a problem because professionals working with people who have disabilities do not necessarily represent the disability community or disability culture. In order to better inform professional fields, more research is needed that explores perspectives and attitudes of people with disabilities. By exploring perspectives of people with disabilities on such topics as identity, social support, and stigma, this research has potential to contribute to such fields as education, rehabilitation psychology, counseling psychology, and school psychology.
  *   Contact the researcher: The NFB community has been very helpful to me in the past, sharing constructive and critical feedback that influenced later research decisions. My goal is to represent your voices as clearly as I can, so I welcome your continued input.
