Welcome! We are excited for you to join us for the READI (Research Engagement and Advocacy for Diverse Individuals) curriculum. This a how-to guide for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities or IDD and their caregivers to understand and get involved in research as a participant, researcher, and consumer. We want to empower individuals with IDD and their communities to more fully participate in research by showing them how to get involved in research.
The READI curriculum includes four modules that cover different research topics, including what is health research, how to create a health story, the steps in the research process, and how to think like a researcher. We also have a bonus workbook if you want to find research in your community! We have many research and advocacy materials for you. Let’s get researching!
