What is this Workshop about?

This event introduces participants to many of the main impacts of intellectual disability that will, to some degree, be reflected in the lives of many people with an intellectual disability.  This material is rarely addressed in formal training and gives participants greater insight into the daily difficulties that people with intellectual disability may face. 

There will be:
• A short review of historical responses to people with intellectual disability

• How others might misunderstand and mistreat people based on ill-informed perspectives

• Different perspectives for understanding the needs of people with intellectual disability

• What supports make sense and put people at best advantage

• Practical principles for supporting people to succeed and underst

Who is this Workshop for?

This event is best suited to family members of those with intellectual disability, support workers, advocates, teachers, managers and others who work alongside people with intellectual disability. 

This event is tremendously informative and practical.


Guest Speaker

John Armstrong has a long involvement in the lives of people with disabilities, in informal advocacy and friendship roles as well as the formal roles of service provider, teacher, adviser and service planner. John is one of two senior Social Role Valorisation and Passing trainers in Australia. He is particularly interested in uncovering the reasons behind the abuse of vulnerable people and the things that influence beneficial instead of detrimental actions. His events seek to increase consciousness and the development of the qualities needed by people who intend to act with integrity and leadership.
