Disability & Inclusion

We undertake research that:

  • identifies community priorities for disability-focused research
  • improves access to and quality of early intervention services for children with developmental differences
  • reduces the risk of co-occurring mental and physical health conditions for people with disabilities
  • enhances wellbeing and quality of life for people with disabilities and their carers
  • reduces disability-related stigma in health, education, work and community settings
  • enhances social, occupational, and community participation.

Our researchers answer questions that are important to people with disabilities and their carers.

We do this as we want our research to make a difference to the lives of people most affected by disabilities.

Our researchers work closely with:

  • People with disabilities and their families
  • Organisations that provide therapeutic and inclusion-focused services (e.g. housing, vocation, social and community participation services) for people with disabilities
  • The disability workforce
  • Early education, primary, secondary and tertiary education providers
  • Workplaces and employers
  • Healthcare professionals and government stakeholders
  • People with a previous lived experience

Our research areas include:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Developmental Language Disorder and other language and communication difficulties
  • Dyslexia and other learning difficulties
  • Intellectual Disability
  • Hearing impairment
  • Injury prevention and rehabilitation
  • Musculoskeletal conditions
