Belonging and People with Intellectual Disabilities from CALD Communities

Back to search results

While gender and age are characteristics now more often included in research about people with intellectual disabilities (Traustadottir & Johnson, 2000; Strnadova & Evans, 2012), other factors are often disregarded. In this collaborative research with people with intellectual disabilities, the PhD scholar will conduct life histories with people with this disability from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities who may have different experiences and views of belonging. This study is significant, as Australia is a multicultural country and the experiences of people who have moved here from other countries may provide particular insights about the nature of belonging.
