Report: PACER’s 2010 FAST Family Support Survey: National Results
This report summarizes the results of a 2010 national internet survey of 2,416 parents or relatives of children and youth with disabilities, age 11 to 39, from 54 states or U.S. territories. Survey respondents were asked to rate the importance of knowing how to get support in 20 areas. They were also asked whether their family needed but was not receiving help, the quality of supports they were currently receiving, and where they turned to find information about disability supports. According to the survey, five information needs rated as most important overall were found in areas such as social skills, advocacy, independent living, health care, and employment.
