Abstract

People with disabilities participate in community settings less than peers. This occurs due to physical and psychosocial barriers. One area of regular community participation is in faith settings, however there is a lack of evidence on how to support inclusion in these settings. This systematic review identifies what supports people with disabilities and their caregivers reported that assists with participation in faith settings. A review was conducted and articles were evaluated. The studies were analyzed for specific supports and then compared to determine the frequency at which the supports were mentioned. It was concluded that physical accessibility and a welcoming, supportive attitude were the supports mentioned most often. Two out of the three top results represent low-to-no cost supports to increase inclusion.
