The Impact of Microboards on Social Capital of Persons with Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities

The Canadian Institute for Inclusion and Citizenship (CIIC) at the University of British Columbia has been conducting a research project exploring the social capital that is built for individuals with Microboards. CIIC was invited to present preliminary findings for their research on Microboards and social capital at the International Association for the Scientific Study of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IASSIDD) conference in Glasgow, Scotland.
We are sharing this exciting news with you because it reflects Microboard members and users’ hard work and dedication. It also shows areas where we (Vela) can provide further assistance. The research project that is being conducted by CIIC should be completed by the end of the year. Stay tuned!
