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.

Autistics Feeling Proud

Recently I attended the I CAN NETWORK “AWETISM 2017: Celebrating The Spectrum Expo” which was a gig I won’t forget for a long time.

At this Expo students who were involved in the I CAN Secondary Schools Program showcased their talents and abilities.

The main message for me after attending this Expo, is how important it is that we encourage people who are on the Spectrum to be proud & our society needs to be more accepting.

See below my chat with Chris Varney, Founder of the I Can Network along with Julia Wake, the Chair of the I Can Network Board.
