Groups to present disability research project

CLARE Inclusive Action Research Group have teamed up with fellow researchers, Galway Research into Action to present the All-Ireland Learning Disability Research Project, All We Want to Say in association with the National Federation of Voluntary Bodies and Trinity College.
This is a joint research drama and film presentation by two of a new breed of cutting-edge research groups, including people with a learning disability investigating and promoting services of choice.
These two groups were prominent contributors to a national survey, gathering information and prioritising issues which emerged from the views, opinions and desires of people the length and breadth of Ireland. Here, they feature select excerpts from the film promoting choice and control in relationships, home life, money and work.
The presentation starts with a drama Home Alone, which portrays a young girl, enjoying the new-found independence of her own home but those around her have their own ideas. The short comic play highlights the main research findings and is followed by a DVD presentation of the official project summary conducted with the National Institute of Intellectual Disabilities NIID of Trinity College and leads on to a plan for action.
The film and other research findings will be presented in the West County Hotel, Ennis on Thursday, July 1 between 2.30 and 4pm.
Contributions towards the work of the Clare Inclusive Action Research Group can be made.
