Tittel

The role of technology in transport for individuals with intellectual disabilities: a scoping review.

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

Transportation is an important element in terms of mobility and a vital component for independent living and employment for individuals with intellectual disabilities (World Health Organization 2001, Dymond 2011). According to several studies, the ability to access reliable transportation is important for people with disabilities in order to participate in society (Rosenkvist et al. 2009, Graham et al. 2014). Despite the importance of transportation, individuals with disabilities often encounter several challenges in accessing and utilizing transportation (Lindsay & Lamptey, 2019). Price, Marsh and Fishers (2018) point out that technology support might reduce barriers for transportation use and that technology can be helpful in supporting independent travel for individuals with intellectual disabilities.

The growing amount of literature on technological solutions and transportation for individuals with intellectual disability has not yet been synthesized. Given the different variations in technological solutions, functions and aims, it is important to identify the literature linked to individuals with intellectual disabilities in this area. An improved understanding of the topic can give an overview which can help to inform researchers and practitioners on the developing literature.

 

RQ

What role does technology have in transportation for individuals with intellectual disabilities?

Metode

According to Munn et al. (2018) a scoping review is considered to be the most suitable approach when the aim is to provide an overview of a broad topic. In addition, scoping reviews are useful to comprehensively and systematically map existing research and identify research gaps.

The scoping review will follow the scoping review guidelines outlined by the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) that draws upon Arksey and O’Malleys (2005) work. The framework has been enhanced further by the work of Levac, Colquhoun and O’brien (2010) and Peters et al. (2015).

The scoping review framework stages will be followed 1. Identifying the research question, 2. Identifying relevant studies, 3. Study selection, 4. Charting the data, 5. Collating, summarizing and reporting the results, 6. Consultation (Joanna Briggs Institute 2015).

The checklist for reporting scoping reviews—the ‘Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis: extension for Scoping Reviews (PRISMA-ScR)’, the PRISMA-ScR26 will be used to report the results and conclusions.

 

SEARCH STRATEGY:

To identify relevant literature for this scoping review, the search strategy will be based on the “PCC” framework (Population, Concept, Context).

- Population: Individuals with intellectual disabilities

C-Concept: Technology supported solutions (Technological assistance, assistive technology, welfare technology)

C-Context: Transportation (To travel from a specific destination to another)

 

DATABASES:

Core database in education and psychology (ERIC and PsycINFO) and health sciences (CINAHL, MEDLINE & EMBASE) and Scopus (multidisciplinary database). Other databases may be considered.

Databases and vendors: PscyINFO (Ovid), ERIC (EBSCOhost), CINAHL (EBSCOhost), MEDLINE (Ovid), EMBASE (Ovid) and Scopus.
