Research & Community

The Participatory Action Research model most used in IL Centres recognizes that people with disabilities have expertise in determining what works and what does not. By working together with individuals, community organizations, governments, schools, universities and businesses, gaps in service can be determined and new options and solutions can be created.

Research and Community Development activities can include, but are not limited to: conducting research and demonstration projects; disability awareness training and facility/web accessibility audits; and crime prevention and abuse initiatives.
