Jenny Crosbie is currently a PhD candidate in the Centre for Social Impact at Swinburne University. She has worked to support people with intellectual disabilities’ inclusion in community life for over 30 years.
She has a particular interest in understanding and addressing the barriers to economic participation young people with intellectual disability face — in particular barriers at the system level, which limit the opportunities young people have to engage in economic participation activities.
Jenny’s current research seeks to identify factors that promote economic participation for young people with intellectual disability as they transition from school.
