I am a student at Georgia State University and for my entrepreneurship class my team and I are working to create a product that could potentially serve as a huge benefit for many developmentally disabled. I am looking to survey adults from age 18-30 with a developmental disability, who are willing an able to complete an online questionnaire. If you or someone you know fits this description, please link us in a message. This would not only help me personally but potentially many others.
Please sign my petition you don't have to send money I just want people to see what disabled people have to deal with!
