Community Voices on ‘Tapping into Tech’: Fostering Equity for Children with Disabilities/Medical Complexity in Northern and Rural British Columbia

In rural and northern BC young disabled/medically complex children’s inequitable access to early child development (ECD) has negative impacts on children, families and communities. How can community voices inform the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) to address ECD inequities for this vulnerable child population? Tailoring ICT to the diverse contexts and lived realities of this population and ECD agencies and providers is central to this participatory project. The co-designed research and action by a Community Council will ensure that this project informs the implementation of supportive practices and policies and sustainable system change to reducing ECD inequities.
