The Arc FINDS Survey 2010

Family and Individual Needs for Disability Supports

This informational survey is being conducted by The Arc, a national disability organization whose mission is to promote and protect the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and actively supports their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes.

The purpose of this survey is to capture the perceptions of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities of all ages,and their families, on issues concerning disability support needs across the life spectrum. Responses will be used to help inform disability organizations, services, policy, and public perceptions on issues related to disability supports that you or your family member has now, needs or is anticipated to need in the future. Your answers will remain completely anonymous and confidential. We will not connect your responses and answers to you personally; your identity will remain unknown to staff working on this project unless you choose to provide your name and contact information at the end of this survey.

To maximize the response rate, we are asking for your help in a final dissemination effort. If you can push this message out to your networks one last time, we will close the survey with a strong response rate and outperform any other survey for this population on record.

We encourage you to send the link and accompanying information to self- advocate networks, parents groups, caregiving providers—anyone who receives or provides direct supports in their community. To access the survey, participants can either go to and click on “The Arc’s FINDS Survey” on the front page of our website, or go directly to the survey link at
