SDHI Seminar presentation on transportation and community access now available

Lia Poeder, visiting Occupational Therapy researcher from the United States presented findings from an exploratory study on community access, public transport and participation as part of an SDHI seminar. The recording (apologies for some sound problems which resulted from construction activity in adjacent rooms) and the slide presentation are now available. The study embraces a socio-relational understanding of disabled access. Built-environment accessibility is crucial. However, making sure that buildings and transportation options are physically accessible is not enough. The ‘human factor’ is of equal if not greater importance to ensure that people with disabilities can actually use public transportation in a purposeful and safe way. You can watch the video recording of the seminar here.
