Learning Together: Connecting Research and Lived Experience

We are excited to have our AUCD community explore the connection between people with disabilities, their families, and the professionals who carry out research about disabilities.  How we talk about research and the words we use make a big difference in how we think about research.  We hope the conference will give us a chance to learn about ways to talk about research that everyone can understand.
