Completed research

The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada has funded two research projects at the Centre for the Arts in Human Development. The first research project, titled Establishing effective creative arts therapies assessments for adults with developmental disabilities, was conducted between 2001-03. The second project, titled Performance-based research: changing perspectives on developmental disabilities through ethnodrama, was conducted between 2006-08.

The Centre continues to innovate and explore the possibilities of the creative arts with smaller research projects, such as assessing the efficacy of using the arts to improve social skills for children with ASD; looking at the link between signing and wellness for adults with ASD; or addressing the needs and experiences around sex education for adults with developmental disabilties.
