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.

*Dear Parents, *

We are conducting a study examining the experiences of youth (aged 12-17)
who are blind or low vision in integrated physical education classes. This
year-long study will include two (2) interviews with a research team
member, electronic diaries, monthly email communications, and a survey at
the beginning and at the end of the study. This study will take place from
May 2021 to April 2022. All data are collected online, and participants can
be from anywhere in the U.S.

To conduct this study, we are seeking youth (aged 12-17) who are blind or
low vision who are enrolled in physical education classes with their peers
during the 2021-2022 school year to participate. We expect that the amount
of time to participate each month will be less than an hour, except for
months when interviews take place, which would then be two hours. All
responses will be confidential, and data will only be used for research
reports and presentations.

Participants will be offered $250.00 in Amazon gift cards (total) to thank
them for participating in this year long study. Participants will be
offered $75.00 at the culmination of the first interview session
(August-September 2021), $75.00 just prior to winter break (December 2021)
and another $100.00 at the culmination of the final interview session
(Spring 2022). Participants will be told that the gift card funds are a
thank you for completing each aspect of the study (interviews, monthly
prompts, diaries, etc). Participants who discontinue participation before
the first interview will not be offered a gift card, those who complete the
first interview but discontinue participation before winter break will not
be offered the second gift card, and those who discontinue prior to the
second interview will not receive the final gift card. Gift cards will be
distributed directly to the participants via email, and parents will be CCd
on the delivery.

If you, or someone you know, is interested in participating, or have
questions about participation, please contact me via the information below.
Thank you,
