Guidelines for Research in the Area of Intellectual Disability
To guide people interested in conducting research in the field of intellectual disability, including how to include people with intellectual disability themselves and suggestions for easy-read formats.
Research guidelines are often not tailored to inclusive research for people with intellectual disability. This paper suggests different models of how this may occur.
Research in the area of Intellectual Disability is limited.
To address this, these guidelines seek to draw on expert knowledge to help highlight ways that people with intellectual disability and their carers can be included in research processes. The guidelines also focus on how to adapt methods and materials to reflect the needs of people with intellectual disability.
This initiative is the result of members of the Research and Development Subcommittee of the Intellectual Disability Network. Membership includes carers, clinical staff across Local Health Districts, and academics.
