Abstract and PowerPoint presentation from Panel Session 463: Toward Universal Design for Evaluation.

A major focus of research and evaluation at the Institute for Community Inclusion is studying and improving day and employment services for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD). In this context, Dr. Sulewski has considerable experience conducting research and evaluation with the I/DD population. Including the viewpoint of individuals with I/DD is a challenging but important part of such research. Her presentation will focus on approaches and lessons learned interviewing and observing people with I/DD for her dissertation on community-based non-work day programs. Topics covered will include obtaining consent, designing questions and instruments to be accessible to a range of cognitive abilities, combining interviews with observations to maximize information, and the role of proxies in interviewing people with communication barriers. Dr. Sulewski also brings to the panel discussion additional experiences related to inclusion of people with various disabilities on project advisory groups, in surveys, and in dissemination of findings.
