The Vanderbilt Kennedy Center’s Disabilities, Religion, and Spirituality Program is conducting a survey focusing on the strengths, spirituality, and well-being of young people with disabilities in Tennessee. Parents or caregivers of young people with an intellectual disability or autism (ages 13-21) are invited to participate. The goal of the survey is to learn more about the things that help young people with disabilities flourish and live a good life.

Hundreds of parents across Tennessee are invited to share their views on the survey as part of this research project. Participating parents will receive a $20 gift card for their involvement. Based on what is learned, a helpful guide for families, faith communities, disability organizations and service providers across the state will be created.
