GO4KIDDS - Great Outcomes for Kids Impacted by Severe Developmental Disabilities

Objective 2b: Social Inclusion

The Community Level - This study focused on the social inclusion of 27 school-aged children with severe developmental disabilities in schools and in the community through a variety of direct observation, questionnaires, interviews and case studies.

This innovative, multi-method approach examined social inclusion across broader ranges of ages and diagnoses, and included various environments and perspectives.  This research has direct implications for public policy and for professionals within both the education system and the social and health services that support these children and their families.
