Strategic Education Solutions — Self-Advocates in Participatory Action Research

Project Goal
Create online resources for people with developmental disabilities (DD) to meaningfully participate in research on topics that are important to their lives

Project Summary
Strategic Education Solutions, in partnership with The Arc of Greater Beaumont, is creating training resources for people with DD to participate in research on issues that affect them. The project is led by people with DD and builds on an existing participatory research process developed by Strategic Education Solutions. 

The project’s resources will include:

  • a visual vocabulary set of research terms;
  • an online training curriculum for self-advocates;
  • a toolkit for researchers; and
  • a virtual board for researchers to connect with people with DD who are available to participate in research projects.

TCDD funds participatory action research projects to promote equal relationships between coordinators and participants in DD-related research. Projects create training opportunities and resources so people with DD are actively involved and have a voice in research about disability issues. Projects also strengthen the connection between researchers and the disability community.
