Of the phases of the disaster cycle, the recovery phase is the longest but the least explored with respect to the experiences of people with disabilities.

Learning objectives:

  • Attendees will learn what research findings reveal about the needs of people with disabilities post-disaster.
  • Attendees will identify barriers which individuals with disabilities and their families encounter during the recovery phase of disaster.
