Garth, Better Rehab Occupational Therapist and a Team Leader at our Wollongong office, had the privilege of attending this year’s “Your Voice Your Choice Self Advocacy Conference.”
Attendees included people with a disability, parents, carers and service providers.
This year’s theme was: “Choice and control.”
Keynote speaker, Dylan Alcott, OAM – wheelchair basketball gold medallist, Australian Paralympian and media personality – inspired audiences with his passionate speech about people with disability having no barriers to inclusion and opportunity in life.
Dylan said he thinks the NDIS will help make this possible by shifting choice and control back to participants.
He is motivated to see people with disabilities integrated into everyday work.
Dylan is involved with several charities that aim to provide better employment access for people with disabilities.
It was a wonderfully inspiring day, and we look forward to applying what we learned through our practice!
