Be Smart When You Recruit

As the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) grows, it’s great that people with disabilities continue to be involved in the recruitment process such as I have since day 1.

This is a happy snap of some of the people I worked with last week as the NDIA recruits more planners.

The video link under the picture is not related to the NDIA, but it does confirm the importance of people with disabilities being involved in all aspects of employment.

Institutional Living & Needing Carers

Set aside 20 minutes to watch this.

It’s an interesting insight from Dick Weinman from Oregon, USA, who shares his journey about moving into an ALF (Assisted Living Facility) which we call “a nursing home”.

Upon my reflection, I’m not seeing or hearing things in Australia that contradict the views of this wise man.

Seeing the Beauty in “Imperfection”

I love the moments when societies deficit language is challenged, often heard when describing disability.

It was an absolute blast spending some time with Rachel Callander who is an author/photographer & has featured photographs of children with chromosomal and genetic conditions.

Not only does her book “Super Power Baby Project” have a collection of exquisite photographs, but they are also complemented with powerful messages.
