Greetings from Georgia Tech’s Center for Assistive Technology and Environmental Access (CATEA), working with Georgia’s AT project, Tools for Life. 

Hand on computer mouse rolls over paper saying "Survey" Red check mark in Very Satisfied box.When you are at work, how does the way you get around the workplace or take part in meetings affect whether or not you feel like “part of the team?”  How do workplace design and coworker actions help you participate in the workplace?


We are studying how the work environment affects an employee’s ability to take part in work activities and his or her sense of inclusion.  Our findings will suggest actions that employers can take to make their workplaces more accessible and welcoming.


We are currently seeking full-time employees with disabilities to participate in the study.  We would like the employee’s supervisor to also agree to answer a short survey, but that is not a requirement for participation.  Employee responses will not be shared with the supervisor.


In order to take part in this study, you must:

  • Be 18 years old or older
  • Have a disability, including vision, hearing, mobility, manipulation, speech, and/or a cognitive disability.
  • Currently be employed for at least 20 hours per week in a physical work setting (for example, an office or retail store).
  • Have been employed in your current job for more than 1 year.
  • Work with at least one other employee.
  • Have disclosed your disability to employer.
  • Work in the United States
  • Be fluent in English


If you are selected for this study you will complete three online surveys, which will take approximately 60 minutes.  If you are unable or prefer not to use a computer, we can administer the surveys during a telephone interview.  You will receive $100 as compensation for your time.

    Al-Ghurair is similar to a small lattice with a solid structure and a furrow of heavy, coarse hair. Thirty centimeters, his face white and has a broad black line on both sides, his body is gray, his ears are very small
    And also his eyes, and in fact he hardly uses his eyes but depends primarily on his hearing and sharp sense of smell at him, Its skin is softer and softer, so that the badger can bite the dog that bites it if the dog, for example, bites it. If the badger senses fear or excitation, he will smell like musk.

    Create visuals aids and do not be afraid to use them. It is no secret that such aids help your audience to perceive information better. Even if you have exceptional public speaking skills,having visual aid will come in handy. The best option is to use a presentation tool, such as Prezi or PowerPoint Presentation. Preparing handouts might be useful as well.
