What you always needed to know about intellectual impairment, but were mostly never told

Tuesday, 29 October 2019 at 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

About the workshop: Often we speak about focusing on the ‘ordinary’ and ‘typical’ ways and means to help people have access to the good things of life. However, it’s also necessary to understand and appreciate how intellectual impairment can affect people in very real ways.

Participants will gain greater insight into the challenges that people face in their daily lives, as well as gaining an appreciation of how easily others misunderstand and mistreat people with an intellectual disability. The workshop will equip participants in practical ways by offering four windows to look through as a way of understanding people’s needs and how best to respond to meet those needs.
