About this Research Topic
The goal of this research topic is to compile a collection of papers that contribute to the current science of disability and rehabilitation in the rural context. It will bring new knowledge about the unique needs of disabled residents, the heterogeneity of rural communities, and the unique contexts that impact services, systems, supports, and overall access to community inclusion and participation. Insights will identify new solutions and opportunities to address barriers experienced by people with disabilities living in rural communities.
We welcome the submission of all article types (original research, reviews, policy reports, opinion pieces, etc) focusing on, but not limited to, the following topics:
Rural disability and health
Rural disability and employment
Rural disability and community living
Rural disability and social participation
Rural Disability and community based participatory research
We would like to acknowledge Tracy Boehm Barrett, University of Montana, who has acted as topic coordinator and has contributed to the preparation of the proposal for this Research Topic.
