Research Opportunity: Disability and Adulthood

March 2, 2020

A doctoral student in sociology at Syracuse University in Syracuse, New York, is collecting surveys and interviews with 50 young adults between ages 25 and 36 over the next 12 months to complete his dissertation research. Participants must have a disability that was diagnosed before age 18, which can include physical, intellectual, sensory, cognitive, health, mental health, or multiple conditions that are considered disabilities. Importantly, participants do not have to agree with their diagnosis, nor do they have to be their own guardian if a guardian will consent to their participation.

Purpose: To understand how young people with disability experience the transition to adulthood.

Participant Eligibility: Must have a disability that was acquired before age 18; must be 25-36 years old; must live in the United States; must be able to communicate experiences independently or with a translator or facilitator.

Participation Requirements: 10-15 minute survey; 2-3 hour in-person interview (Location to be determined by participant; some disability-related accommodations available).

If you wish to participate, please contact Dalton Stevens by telephone at (309)-267-7644 or email at
