Chapter 4: Case Studies on Jordan and Lebanon

Two case studies of institutions were conducted, one in Jordan and one in Lebanon. For each case study, researchers interviewed five residents, three family members, and the head of the institution. The field research team also conducted two focus group discussions with caregivers and one hour-long observation in the residents’ common spaces. 

Selection criteria for the two institutions included providing full-time residence; hosting foreign nationals; covering the widest range of disability types, including physical and intellectual disabilities; and accommodating both male and female residents of varying ages. This chapter presents results from each case study.
