METHODS: A cross-sectional survey was used with community-dwelling older PwID in urban/rural regions of two Australian states. Recruitment was undertaken via a multi-prong approach and each subject (N = 391; 236 urban/155 rural) personally interview...

There is a paucity of research exploring the experiences of mothers of a young adult with intellectual disability sharing the family home. A case study using a phenomenological life story approach was conducted to gather and analyse data from 11 in-depth interviews held with a mother, Linda, about her experiences. Linda’s story yielded three main themes, 1) an intense struggle and hardship of living ‘in the void’, 2) gathering resources and coping to counter the ‘masters of the universe’ and 3) ...

This study explores the experiences of 7 Taiwanese people with physical disabilities in Taiwan. Three in-depth interviews with each participant were conducted. Participants identified experiences of community exclusion, despite disability legislation. We argue that their exclusionary experiences reflect embedded cultural attitudes and call for greater recognition of these influences to help foster inclusion of disabled people in Taiwan. Recommendations for researchers and policy-makers are provi...
Research is limited on whether differing methodologies for facilitating personal contributions from individuals aging with intellectual disability produce equivalent knowledge outcomes. Two matched purpose-developed tools examined five quality-of-life domains. Results showed substantial variance between qualitative interview responses and Likert-scale data, and indicate validity concerns for using either methodology in isolation.

These people said that they were well supported by the local community and particularly their doctors. However, many people in this project also reported problems about living in the country such as limited choices and being forced to make decisions th...

This concept compels new conversations about the complex nature of life experiences for people with lived experience of mental illness. This article examines narratives by eight artists with lived experience of mental illness to understand how opportunities are available through art for people with lived experienc...
