Seeking 14 to 18 Year Olds with Visual Impairment and Their Parents for a Research Study
The purpose of this study is to describe the social experiences of teens with visual impairment. This study will provide information about what these teens and their parents experience as they transition into life after high school.
Anyone with visual impairment, including blindness, who is between 14 and 18 years old may be in the study as long as that person can speak English, understand what the study is about and make a decision to participate, and has no physical or hearing impairment. Parent permission is required. Any interested parent of a participating teen may be in the study as long as they speak English.
If you agree to be in this study, you will be asked personal questions in 2-3 private interviews with an experienced occupational therapist/orientation and mobility specialist.
