Topics Covered will include:

  • Building a vision for inclusion
  • Including all learners in the same curriculum
  • Fostering classroom and playground relationships to build belonging
  • Whole class inclusive strategies and planning individualised supports
  • Understanding “behaviour”
  • Home-school partnerships and problem-solving

Seven Steps to Self-Direction – Rockhampton

Building right relationships between people with disability, families, committed friends and support workers

 

 

About the Workshop:

How have other people made self-management work?

This one-day workshop explores a practical, values-based framework of self-direction, and how to develop supports that work respectfully and constructively together.

The seven steps provide a simple, helpful guide that can be worked through, or started at any step. This workshop draws on the resource developed by Griffith University (Dr Margaret Ward) as part of the NDS Innovative Workforce Fund Project.

Self-direction has been found to give greater choice and control, and more effective and flexible use of available formal and freely-given support. Good support requires the right people to provide the right level of support at the right time.

There are some preconditions that make good support in self-directed arrangements more likely to happen. This seven step approach takes participants from starting with the person through to problem solving and checking for resilience.

Quote from Henry Ford: Coming Together is a Beginning;Keeping together is progress; working together is success

Who should attend?

This workshop is for people with disability, their families, supporters and workers who are involved in a self-directed arrangement who want it to work as well as possible, and for people interested in moving to a person-centred, self-directed arrangement. It works best if the person comes with their family and supporters.
