Research Opportunity for parents of adult children with disabilities

March 14, 2013

“Exciting Research Opportunity!

Researchers at the University of Victoria are interested in looking at how parents of adult children (i.e., 19 years of age and older) with intellectual disabilities plan for the future of their children. If you are the parent of an adult child with an intellectual disability, you are eligible to participate. The information gained through this research could be used to better assist and support parents as they face the difficult task of planning for the future of their loved ones.

Participation in this research involves completing a brief electronic questionnaire. In addition, if agreed to, there is the possibility thatparticipants will be contacted at a later date for a follow-up audio-recorded phone interview. Participants are under no obligation to agree to follow-up contact.

If you are interested in participating or have further questions, please contact Megan at or 250-858-5836. Thank you for considering this research project!”

If you have any questions about this research, feel free to contact me by email or at 250-858-5836, or to contact my supervisor, Dr. Holly Tuokko, at 250-721-6350. This study has received ethics approval from the University of Victoria’s Human Research Ethics office.

Note: we really believe that good research is helpful to people and that there should be more interdependent relationships between researchers and families / self advocates, but we are posting this on behalf of the researcher and it has nothing to do with Spectrum or the 101 friends projects.  Thanks!
