The 2017 Family and Individual Needs for Disability Supports (FINDS) Survey is Here!

Are you 18 years or older and the family member of a person with an intellectual or developmental disability (I/DD)?
Do you provide primary un/paid and frequent support to a person with an I/DD living in the United States and U.S. territories?

We are pleased to share that our colleagues at The Arc of the United States in collaboration with the Research and Training Center on Community Living at the University of Minnesota have launched the 2017 Family and Individual Needs for Disability Supports (FINDS) Survey which seeks to capture experiences of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families on a range of life-span issues:

Take the survey and share it widely in your networks! The deadline is March 30.

The results of the 2010 Survey provided unique insight into the growing gaps in education, employment, and other life-span activities that exist between persons with disabilities and their non-disabled peers, which has informed further dialogue and policy changes at the Federal and State levels.



Are you an organization that serves families? Please consider sharing the FINDS Survey information with the families you know!
