Community Participation by People with Disabilities: "How Do We Measure Up?”
Start Date: October 28, 2010
End Date: October 29, 2010
Description:This state-of-the-science conference is the culmination of four years of translational research designed to enhance full community participation by people with disabilities. Researchers with the Research and Training Center on Measurement and Interdependence in Community Living (RTC/MICL) have used multiple methods and measures to discover, assess and intervene in both personal and environmental factors related to community participation. The conference will bring together researchers, policy makers, consumers, service providers and advocates of independent living to explore the latest findings in the areas of independent living, health care, measurement processes and outcomes, participation and access for people with disabilities (physical accessibility, access to services), advocacy, rehabilitation, administration, and related topics. They will discuss results, obstacles and the next steps.
