The Indiana Institute on Disability and Community is looking to get the perspectives and experiences of attorneys and other professionals (paid professional guardians or volunteer guardians) that serve in guardianship or other legal decision-making roles for adults with disabilities. Please consider taking time out of your day to complete this time sensitive survey regarding guardianship issues.
Guardianship in Indiana:
A survey of attorneys and other professionals working with adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities
Dear Attorney, Professional or Volunteer Guardian,
I am writing to request your participation in an online survey. The purpose of the survey is to gather information on knowledge, attitudes, and practices around guardianship for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We would like to survey you because of your practice as an attorney or professional or volunteer guardian with adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities under guardianship.
The survey is anticipated to last about 5 minutes and will include questions about your knowledge of, attitudes toward, and use of guardianship and alternatives to guardianship with adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Survey responses are anonymous.
The findings from this survey will be useful for increasing our understanding about guardianship and related practices in the state of Indiana.
If you are willing to participate in this survey, please click on the enclosed link in this letter. If you have any questions feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (812)856-7896.
I greatly appreciate your time and consideration.
