Evaluating community-based behavioural interventions for persons with intellectual/developmental disabilities.
Our research goal is to improve community-based services for persons with developmental disabilities. We'll test a service that helps people who are in crisis because their caregivers find it hard to meet their needs. We'll develop and test a program to teach therapists how to involve parents in treatment decisions. Finally, we'll test a program to teach kids to cross the street safely. Our partner, St.Amant, serves thousands of individuals and families every year. St.Amant and other agencies can use what we learn to help those people live safe and independent lives in their communities.
