Exciting Research Opportunity!

Researchers at the University of Victoria are interested in examining the different ways that parental caregivers of adult children (i.e., 19 years of age and older) with intellectual disabilities (i.e., significant limitations both in intellectual functioning and in adaptive behaviours, which extends to a variety of social and practical skills) plan for the future of their children.  If you are the parent of an adult child with an intellectual disability, you are eligible to participate.

The information obtained through this research could aid in developing methods for better assisting and supporting parental caregivers as they face the challenging task of planning for the future of their loved ones.

Participation in this research involves completing a brief electronic questionnaire. In addition, if agreed to, there is the possibility that participants will be contacted at a later date for a follow-up audio-recorded phone interview. Participants are under no obligation to agree to follow-up contact.

If you are interested in participating or have further questions, please contact Megan at cainesm@uvic.ca or 250-858-5836.

Thank you for considering this research project!
