Disability-related policy research requires a number of special tools to ensure its success. The CDPA has developed methods and approaches to facilitate policy-relevant research related to disability studies. We offer these to interested scholars:
- The Disability Policy Lens – a 9-step process for analysing policy related to disability issues’
- The Learning Collaborative methodology – a research approach that optimizes the contribution of academic, consumer and policy partners
- The Disability Timeline – an interactive history of disability policy in Canada
- Accessibility Measures – five measurement tools to assess accessibility, including physical, attitudinal, informational and systemic accessibility.
