With Dr. Adrian Chan and Dr. Atul Jaiswal.

Participatory research collaborates directly with the stakeholders that are affected by the issue under investigation and can lead to better research outputs and outcomes, including research uptake. The concept of participatory research is well-aligned with the motto “nothing about us, without us”, which is an essential approach for equity-denied communities, including the disability community. There is a spectrum of what “participation” could mean and a variety of barriers to participation, including systemic barriers. This seminar will discuss the intersection of participatory research and disability, and the experiences of conducting such research with individuals with disabilities, including those with multi-sensory impairments.
