Attention: All students with a mobility disability are invited to take the national survey regardless of their athletic experience or level. 
Goal: With this survey, we are interested in learning about various student experiences and what you are looking for in a college setting as a student with a disability, so we can create change together in our schools. Please follow the instructions carefully.  You will be asked to answer questions based on your level as an athlete. Not all questions will be answered by everyone. 
Acknowledgments: This survey was created with the valuable input of many key influencers in the community. Special thanks to Coach Dave Kiley; Kathy McCarty, Adaptive Fitness Clinic Instructor and Aztec Adaptive Sports Program co-founder at San Diego State University; Margaret Stran, Associate Director of Adapted Athletics at University of Alabama; Doug Garner UTA Men's Wheelchair Basketball Team Coach; Michael Cottingham, Director of Adaptive Athletics at University of Houston; and Ryan Martin, professional wheelchair basketball player and the founder of the Ryan Martin Foundation.
