In “Toward Equity in Research on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities,” we sought to make entrenched assumptions and practices of intellectual and developmental disabilities research visible by explicitly describing the status quo in terms of models of disability, participant and researcher identities, research priorities, and biases in measurement and treatment approaches. We then curated individual- and systems-level actions drawn from disability justice and broader social justice lenses to offer a way forward. We focused on three major areas (i.e., intersectionality and person-centered approaches, participatory research, and interprofessional collaboration), depicting influences, methods, and actions in a framework of disability, identity, and culture. In this Author Response, we address five commentaries that critique and extend that synthesis.
