Study on the Impact of COVID-19 on People with Disabilities Self-Directing Home and Community-Based Services

Brandeis University is conducting a study to learn about the experiences of people receiving home- and community-based services and self-directing those services. They are interested in learning how people with disabilities are staying safe, how they are keeping their personal care attendants safe, and how they are accessing critical services and supports. Information from this study will be used to advise government agencies and providers.

  • Are you a person with a disability who receives Medicaid home and community-based services?
  • Are you above the age of 18?
  • Do you self-direct your services and supports? In other words, do you control who you hire to provide services or control a budget for services?
  • Do you live in the United States?

If you answered yes to each of the questions above, you may be eligible to participate. Participation includes one interview over the telephone or videoconference. The interview will be about one hour. Participants will receive a small gift card for their time.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Miriam Heyman, Senior Research Associate at the Lurie Institute for Disability Policy, at miriamheyman@brandeis.edu or 781-736-8415.

This study is made possible by the Lurie Institute for Disability Policy and the Community Living Policy Center at Brandeis University. Funding is provided by ACL's National Institute for Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research.
