Plain Language Research Summaries

ASID is committed to ensuring research is accessible.

We recently engaged journalist and communications specialist, Lisa Clarke, to develop plain language research summaries on recent research published in our two journals: Journal of Intellectual and Developmental Disability (JIDD) and Research and Practice in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (RAPIDD) about employment of people with intellectual disability.

Over the next month we will release three research summaries on this topic.

The first, released here, summarises the key messages from two articles published in 2018 in JIDD which identify the proven benefits of employing people with intellectual disability and poses the question: why aren’t more organisations doing this?

We will release the next research summary in two weeks’ time so keep your eyes open!
