We are currently recruiting youth/Service provider/Decision-maker participants for one of our research studies, “Discrimination, ableism and racism hurt but inclusion can heal: ‘Listening to the intersectional lived experiences of youth with disabilities and co-creating solutions’. This study focused on understanding the diverse lived experience of youth with disabilities and particularly how disability intersects with race, ethnicity and/or gender. We would like to learn about suggestions from youth, clinicians, educators, service providers and decision makers on how to address and minimize discrimination towards people with disabilities. Specifically, youth, who are aged 15-29 and has a disability and identifies as belonging to a racial, ethnic or gender minority group, are encouraged to participate.
