Leading Disability Research in Nigeria
At ISDS, we have an experienced and strategic international coalition of disability and social inclusion academics, clinicians, psychiatrists, who collaboratively or individually work on different disability related projects in line with the School’s objectives. We have currently established teams of researchers according to the following research themes:
Understanding Disability, Promoting Disability Inclusion.
ISDS recently delivered two workshops for Propcom Mai-karfi on disability inclusiveness: one for key stakeholders and the other targeted at Propcom staff. The stakeholders workshop brought together participants from over twenty public and private sector organisations. Both workshops were platforms to sensitise participants on disability, share findings from research and experiences, and consolidate efforts to promoting disability inclusion. At the end of the workshops, participants developed strategies to improve inclusion of people with disabilities in their organisations and projects.
The African Journal of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AJIDD)
The African Journal of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AJIDD) is new publication to be launched by ISDS. The journal would provide an accessible, readable and informative source of data and knowledge for those working in the field of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, Special Educational Needs, Mental Health and related subjects with a special focus on Africa. The journal would publish original research, literature reviews, theoretical and empirical papers on topics related to Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, Special Educational Needs, Mental Health and Learning Difficulties. AJIDD is to be published by the ISDS and papers published in the journal are freely accessible online for ISDS members and students.
