The Youth Advisory committee is advising the IECSS project researchers and partners in their research activities over the 7 year duration of the project. We are committed to engaging with children and young people who identify with disabilities. In our research work we are interviewing adults about the processes that are required to access services for young people, we felt it was critical to have the perspective of young disabled people as we interpret our findings.
Our Youth Advisory committee was launch in October, 2018 at a Shaking the Movers/IECSS event, hosted at Carlton University by our partners at the Landon Pearson Centre. Materials developed for the event are available below.
We will meet with our Youth Advisory committee a minimum of once per year and as needed throughout the project.
