Voices Lost in Crisis: Adults with IDD Share Their Lived Experience during the Covid-19 Pandemic
Persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) collaborated on a Photovoice project to explore their lived experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thirteen persons with IDD from across Ontario participated (including Niagara, Haldimand, Hamilton, Sudbury and Wellington regions). This two-part lecture series will review the emancipatory research methodology and results. In part one, we will review the participatory action research process, where participants collaborated on the research questions, and learned to use a camera, take pictures, and use journaling to express their experiences throughout the pandemic. In part two, we will review the common and salient experiences. Participants will discuss their experience of loss and grief, social distancing and lockdown, missing friends, family, and work and the impact of COVID-19 on their mental health and relationships. They will also describe societal concerns related to ableism, inaccessibility, accommodations, and intersectionality, while demonstrating resilience in problem-solving, use of resources and technology, and looking for joy in the small things. In these lectures, we hope to raise awareness about the impact of the pandemic on the lives of persons with disabilities. Online Event
