Hello I’m John McKenna, I enjoy having a conversation on the many aspects of disability.
I welcome the views from individuals, family members, Government representatives and professionals working in the disability sector.
I live in Melbourne Australia and have a disability known as Arthrogryposis since birth.
An electric wheelchair is my mode of transport, so naturally I have many views around the challenges this presents to me.
My professional area of interest is working with people who have intellectual disabilities and their families.
Past and current projects
- Running focus groups with prisoners who have an intellectual disability
- Advocating for & with families and individuals who have individual support funding packages from the Goverment
- Develop peer support groups for people with disabilities
