What is this webinar about?

Home is a vital part of our lives. It not only provides us with security, privacy, comfort and control but it reflects our identity, our adulthood and our deep sense of who we are and how we connect and belong in our neighbourhood. Yet for many people, particularly with intellectual disability and Autism, home is designed by others with little control over the decisions that most people take for granted. In this webinar series, through the journey of others, we will explore individualised and innovative ways that people with a disability have created their own home, while getting the support they need. In these practical and down to earth sessions we will explore some of the essential elements of what makes a house a home.

Who is this webinar for?

This webinar series will be relevant to those supporting people with developmental disabilities. It will be of particular interest to families and advocates as they think through how their son or daughter might move into, and thrive in a home they can call their own.
