On My 2012 Radar

Whilst up with the birds & walking the dogs before the heat set in this morning, I was thinking about themes and topics that I might cover this year.

This is my hit list so far

  • National Disability Insurance Scheme, as it is being built
  • Innovative ways to make peoples disability support funding stretch further
  • Using Human Rights as a tool to get your message out there
  • Accommodation Institution, are they quietly, slowly being redeveloped under a different name “Cluster Housing”
  • Mobile phone applications for people with Autism and Aspergers
  • Reviewing service providers that really get it when we talk about, “Individualised Choice”
  • How we work with people who have behaviors of concern?
  • The value of “Peer Support” from people with disabilities
  • Relinquishment of children with disabilities
  • The pros and cons of directly employing your support workers
  • Facilitated Communication
  • Fashionable clothing specifically designed for people who only sit
  • Will direct employment of carers extinguish a volunteer passion?

Thanks all of you who continually take the time to give me feedback, I guess this is what keeps me going.

Also would like to again acknowledge Simon Kneebone and his support with the illustrations.

You are great Simon, thank you
