Abstract

Research teams must collaborate with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to identify effective and inclusive responses to COVID-19 and other public health emergencies. Collaborating remotely requires telecommunication and other technologies. We designed and evaluated a digital “Toolkit for Remote Inclusive Research” to provide research teams with evidence-informed strategies to make remote research accessible to and inclusive of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. First, we completed a rapid scoping review to identify technology used by people with intellectual and developmental disabilities on collaborative research teams. Second, we designed a digital toolkit featuring 23 strategies identified in the review. Third, six inclusive researchers evaluated the toolkit. We illustrate how our team used these evidence-informed strategies during the past year to develop this and other tools to support inclusive research.
