Research Participants Needed! Physical Activity Among Adults with Severe and Profound Intellectual Disabilities with Concurrent Mobility Impairments Requiring the Use of a Wheelchair: The Perspectives of Family Caregivers and Clinicians

Mar 23, 2023 | Valerie Perkoski

Valerie Perkoski is a 2022-2023 Health and Disability Fellow at NACCHO and a PhD student at Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions. She is seeking participants to take part in a research project looking at the experiences of physical activity among those with severe or profound intellectual disabilities who require the full-time use of a wheelchair. If you are or know of a family caregiver or a clinician of people with these disabilities who live in the United States, we encourage you to be a part of this study or share details with them.

Interviews will be conducted by Zoom and will take about 60 minutes. The responses to the interview questions will be kept confidential. Being a part of this research is voluntary and participants are free to stop at any time without giving a reason. To help meet the study’s guidelines, participants will be given a short survey that can be accessed below and if eligible, they will receive a follow-up phone call to discuss the research and their questions will be answered. The survey results will be stored in a secure, business-class Google Drive. This screening survey data will also be stored securely in Qualtrics and deleted once the study has ended. All data provided will be stored securely on the Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions’ password protected network.
