Take a survey on technology and remote services
November 13, 2017
You are invited to complete a survey, as a part of a research study conducted by The Ohio State University Nisonger Center, in collaboration with the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities. The survey is for family members of people with developmental disabilities and is about remote supports (also known as remote monitoring). Your answers are helpful, even if you have not used or heard of remote supports.
Remote supports use electronic equipment to support and assist people with developmental disabilities in their home. This service is provided from an off-site location, typically using home and community based waivers to fund the cost and maintenance of equipment and staff.
Your feedback will provide the Nisonger Center and DODD with valuable suggestions for the improvement and expansion of remote services.
