Person-Centered Planning and Social Inclusion for Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Research Study

Hello, my name is Katie Dempsey and I am a student in the Human Behavior department at National University (NU). I am conducting a study to identify the relationship between person-centered planning and social inclusion. I am asking adults over the age of 18 who provide care to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to complete a survey. The results will be reported in a thesis that I will complete as a requirement of my graduate program.

The survey includes questions that ask you to describe the process of person-centered planning for the individual you support. You will also be asked to describe your opinions about their level of social inclusion. The survey also includes questions about your age, sex, race, relationship to individual and the individual’s diagnosis, education level and living arrangement. It will take about 15 minutes of your time to complete the survey.

To qualify for this study, you must be over the age of 18 and live in the United States.

Your participation in this study is voluntary. If you decide to participate, your responses will be anonymous – that is, recorded without any identifying information that is linked to you. If you have any questions regarding this survey, please contact me at

As a thank you for participating in this study, you may be entered into a drawing for a $25 Amazon gift card.
