The below research participant solicitation is being provided for informational purposes only. The National Federation of the Blind has no involvement in this research, but we believe that it may contribute to our research mission.

The NRTC on Blindness & Low Vision at Mississippi State University is now recruiting for field test participants for a new app project, 4to24, designed to help parents and youth focus on employment. The app provides information, resources, and activities that will help youth build independence and skills for employment as an adult.

We are seeking parents of youth with blindness or visual impairment who are age 4 to 24, and youth with blindness or visual impairment who are age 16 to 24, to participate in a study using the app for a 6-month period.

Attached to this email is a recruitment flyer that tells more about our app project and how it can benefit parents and youth. If you or someone you know may be interested in learning more, please see the attached flyer, or follow this link:


If you have questions or need more assistance, please call Anne Steverson or Karla Antonelli at 1-866-675-7782 or email at acc155 at mssstate.edu<mailto:acc155 at mssstate.edu> or kantonelli at colled.msstate.edu<mailto:kantonelli at colled.msstate.edu>.
