1. Seymour, William. The everyday Olympics: an introduction to the many faces of Special Olympics.

Degree: MA, Specialized Journalism, 2013, University of Southern California

Special Olympics International has a goal of serving 200 million people around the world who have intellectual disabilities (ID). Despite working in more than 170 countries, Special Olympics works in relative obscurity for an organization of its size and scope. Many people access Special Olympics through the sporting events it organizes, but there are more facets to the movement’s advocacy and activity. Special Olympics provides health screenings in an attempt to address the gap in health outcomes between people with ID and the general population. Special Olympics is partnering with schools to reach younger potential athletes and spokespeople. These youth leaders will hopefully work to foster a more inclusive environment in their schools and communities. Adapted physical therapy and an emphasis on Unified Sports, where people with and without ID play as teammates, are other avenues for this school outreach. Adult Special Olympics athletes are also interviewed to explore what competition means for them and how Special Olympics has improved their lives on and off the field. Advisors/Committee Members: Abrahamson, Alan Y. (Committee Chair), Morgan, William J. (Committee Member), Durbin, Daniel T. (Committee Member).

2. Bonsall, Aaron. An ethnographic study of men fathering children with disabilities.

Degree: PhD, Occupational Science, 2013, University of Southern California

The aim of this research is to examine the experiences of fathers of children with disabilities as they engage in fathering occupations. Current research on fathers of children with disabilities focuses on stress, lacking an examination of what fathers are doing with their children and why they are doing it. This ethnographic study employs narrative phenomenology as both a theoretical lens and a research methodology, employing interviews and observations of five fathers who have a child with a disability. Major themes that emerged in father’s stories included descriptions of: (a) the construction of disability narratives, (b) transitions that influence the enactment of fatherhood, (c) the power of redemptive narratives, (d) and the experience of fathering occupations. Fathers’ communication with their children in the car is used to explore places of fathering occupations. Men’s investments in fathering occupations are explored through examination of a father feeding his daughter with a disability. Discussion includes implications for fathering research, the study of occupations, and family centered care. Advisors/Committee Members: Lawlor, Mary C. (Committee Chair), Mattingly, Cheryl (Committee Member), Jacobs, Lanita (Committee Member), Neville-Jan, Ann (Committee Member), Morgan, William J. (Committee Member).
