Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) Study
Seeks Participants in the London area

May 25, 2005


An invitation to participate in a study about
ODSP and the Advocacy Process

  • Have you ever been to an Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) hearing?

  • Did you attend the hearing with an advocate who spoke on your behalf OR Are you an Advocate yourself?

  • Are you from the London (Ontario) area?

If so, I am interested in hearing your stories.

I am seeking people to participate in a study to learn about their experiences at the ODSP hearing. In particular, the study hopes to determine how the role of advocates influence the ODSP appeals process.

This study will consist questions asked in an 1 hour interview. Examples of questions that might be asked include:

  • Can you please share with me your thoughts and impressions of the ODSP hearing?
  • Thinking back to your experience, how would the process be different without an advocate?

For more information about the study and how to participate, please contact Peter Houghton via ...

email: houghtpw@mcmaster.ca
phone: 519-870-9602 (please leave a voicemail)

(I am also seeking to interview advocates. If you are an Advocate in the London area who attends ODSP hearings with clients and would be interested in participating in the study, please feel free to contact me for more information)

I am a master level Social Work student at McMaster university. I am conducting this study as a requirement for my course and also out of my interest in the advocacy process.

Please feel free to pass this along to anybody who may be interested.

Thank you!

Peter Houghton
