Content

This unit aims to provide students with knowledge and skills to work effectively with a range of contemporary practice approaches in the field of social inclusion and disability. Topics include: policies related to disability and inclusion; individualised services and funding; person-centred approaches; community inclusion; community capacity building and community development; and practices for working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with disability, and with people with severe and profound intellectual disability (such as supported decision making). The unit also focuses on the National Disability Insurance Scheme and the opportunities it provides for changing all professions, services and the community at large to be more inclusive. The unit engages students to think about their own professional roles and discipline and to identify opportunities to utilise inclusive practice.
