Dr. Claudia Sellmaier and I are conducting a study exploring the experiences of social work students (BSW/BASW, MSW, and PhD/DSW) with disabilities in their social work education.

We are interested in learning more about the educational experiences of social work students with disabilities, their experiences with disability services specifically, and with resources in general. We hope to use the findings to better improve services and educational outcomes for students with disabilities in social work programs.

The current study also received IRB approval from the University of Washington Human Subjects Review Board.

The study has closed, but you can follow this page as we will update it when we have links to publications and presentations.
