Dyslexia Box are delighted to announce that we will be collaborating with the Research Centre for Global Learning at Coventry University on a research project looking at digital innovation and e-working for adults with disabilities and neurodiversities.
The project, entitled ‘Disability, neurodiversity, and remote e-working: promoting the creation of an inclusive workplace - ‘Remote for All’ (R4All)’, is led by Dr Christine Grant with Dr Maria Charalampous and Dr Carlo Tramontano from the School of Psychological, Social and Behavioural Sciences.
The research aims to explore and understand the challenges and opportunities of remote working for individuals with disabilities and neurodiversity. Dyslexia Box will be working with the research team to facilitate the recruitment and participation of participants to take part in the project, whilst also offering industry guidance and research support. The final outcome will be a curated toolkit that will support both individuals and organisations in becoming better prepared for remote working.
This project is possible through funding that has been awarded from the Digit Innovation grant, which supports innovative research projects that advance understanding of how digital technologies are transforming work. The grant comes from the Digital Future at Work Research Centre, and is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
More information about this research project will be released in the coming weeks...so stay tuned!
