- Are you between 13 and 24 years old?
- Do you have an intellectual or developmental disability?
- Do you live in Toronto or Hamilton?

If yes, then you could get involved in a research project. People who communicate in any way are invited to take part!

WHAT IS THE RESEARCH ABOUT? We want to know about and better understand the views of youths (13 to 24 years) with developmental and intellectual disability about some important parts of their lives. We want to know about participants own experiences and thoughts about these parts of their lives to help people providing services to do that better.

For more information on this research project, please click here!
