PHD Student, Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, Western University

I am currently a PHD Student at Western University in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, Occupational Science Field. My doctoral research will explore the impact that access to direct funding has on the occupational performance and engagement of people with disabilities (PWDs) who receive funding from the Ontario Direct Funding (ODF) program to ‘self-manage’ their attendant services. To address this central aim, this project will focus on three primary objectives including: (i) to identify how direct funding promotes occupational engagement and performance for PWDs; (ii) to critically examine the enabling and potentially disabling effects of direct funding (DF) models when they are put into practice; and (iii) to inform changes to existing policy, specific to funding for attendant care across Canada that is relevant, effective and accessible.
