About

To improve secondary school students' positive attitudes towards older adults with physical disabilities via a Promoting an incLUsive Society towards older adults with physical disabilities through disability simulation education (PLUS) project.

Full description

A pretest-posttest and qualitative study design will be adopted. 1,000 junior secondary students will be recruited from six secondary schools in Hong Kong by convenience sampling to participate in a 3-day PLUS Convention. Changes in students' attitudes towards older adults with physical disabilities and satisfaction with life, and their satisfaction with the disability simulation experience will be assessed. Semi-structured interviews will be conducted with students, facilitators, teachers, and older adults with physical disabilities to gain further feedback.
