The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (2022) estimates that 1 in 6 Australians live with a disability. In this unit you will further your understanding of ableism, disability and inclusive practice, and the intersection between mental health and disability.
You will have the opportunity to develop skills that are relevant to working in varied contexts with people who have lived and living experience of disability and those who support them. This learning will be positioned within key frameworks to allow for a thorough examination of societal barriers, such as access to services and employment, and possible solutions to better facilitate the inclusion of people with lived experience of disabilities.
This unit will assist you to appreciate the complex impacts of disability and work towards more inclusive practices.
