Editors: Thilo Kroll (University of Dundee, UK), David Keer, Paul Placek, Juliana Cyril and Gerry Hendershot
Book Description:
The chapters in this book focus on three central themes.
- Current Challenges in Survey Development for People with Disabilities
- Strategies to Promote Inclusion of People with Disabilities in Survey Development
- Issues for Future Development
This book is primarily a book for researchers and practitioners in the disability field. Since the topics presented in the book crosscut multiple disciplines and thus may be suited for students and experts of various disciplines. It hopefully also finds many interested readers among students and teachers of medical, social and disability sciences studies at colleges and universities. While some chapters highlight the currently unresolved barriers towards obtaining accurate measurements for certain disability populations, others introduce innovative ways to plan for and to conduct inclusive surveys. In many instances, the work presented is work in progress and as such it is important in that it is expected to stimulate debate and future research work.
