COVID-19 supports for people with disabilities and caregivers

In this study we want to get a better understanding of the current situation of people with disabilities at the time of coronavirus. Specifically, we want to know:

  • What are the concerns and challenges that people with disabilities and caregivers of people with disabilities (both adults and children) are facing at this time?
  • What supports do people with disabilities and caregivers of people with disabilities need to address these challenges, and are these supports available?

We are interested in the experiences of people of all ages: children, youth, adults and the elderly. You can take the 5-minute survey or participate in an interview. 

For more information, contact Kinga Pozniak (pozniakk@mcmaster.ca) or visit the study webpage.

 

Global report

The Global Report on Developmental Delays, Disorders, and Disabilities

The COVID-19 pandemic is hard for everyone but coping with the pandemic can be even harder for people with disabilities and their families. We are inviting Canadian families to contribute to the World Health Organization/UNICEF Global Report on Developmental Delays, Disorders, and Disabilities. Your response to a brief survey  will help to identify service needs and inform policies related to the pandemic. 

Before you start, please read the Informed Consent to see if you agree to answer the questions.

After completing the survey, we will send you a gift of $15 as a thank you for your participation.
