Kansas University’s Research and Training Center on Independent Living is doing a study on how people with physical disabilities can become more involved in the community.
Researchers are seeking participants, and hope to get started in the next few weeks.
To be eligible, people must meet the following criteria:

• learn knowledge and skills to enhance community participation.
• be asked to keep track of daily activities.
• receive monetary reward up to $250 for participating.
