London Children's Museum is currently working with a group of PhD students at Western University to support their research project on inclusion in informal learning environments. 

Here is more information about the study:

Hello,

My name is Nicole Neil and I am an assistant professor at the University of Western Ontario. I have received your email address from your organization’s website. You are being invited to participate in a study assessing the barriers and facilitators to participation for children with intellectual and developmental disabilities within informal learning organizations. This information will be collected by researchers via an online survey as well as individual interviews which will take place over video conferencing or telephone.

To participate, you must be an English-speaking staff member (directors, curators, administrators, or other staff) of your organization. During the study, staff members will be provided a link to the online survey to complete assessing the barriers and facilitators to participation for children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Participants will be given the opportunity to provide their email address if they are interested in participating in an individual follow-up interview. The online survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete and the interview will take approximately 30-60 minutes and will occur through OWL Collaborate.
