Hello, I am a 3rd year Applied Theatre degree student. I am currently developing a website page for a theatre company regarding accessibility (i.e. how accessible their venue is - including information of size of door ways etc). I have compiled a questionnaire (below) and I would be super grateful if anyone could have a look through this. In particular, I want to make sure nothing in the questionnaire is inappropriate, badly worded, offensive, patronising etc. (apologies in advance if this is the case).

If you do have any ideas for more questions I could include that might be useful, then please feel free to let me know. I will come back onto this forum with the finished questionnaire for anyone kind enough to fill it in. The questionnaire will be via a survey website link, so boxes to tick etc. will be included then.

I'd really appreciate your help, thank you so much.

1. Please could you give details of your disability and how it affects you.
