Ryerson professor to study impact of childhood disability with $2.5M in support

July 13, 2018

A Faculty of Community Service Professor at Ryerson University will lead a team of 30 researchers and 16 partner organizations to examine the institutional response our society has to disability in early childhood, from the standpoint of families. Supported by a $2.5M federal grant, the research team will interview 120 families across Canada and gather data about their interactions with institutions that intend to serve their child with a disability, while following the children from a previous study as they age into the school system. Ryerson
