Session 2 – Tuesday, 18 October 2022 at 10 am to 1.00 pm (AEST)
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 neighborhood. 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 workshop, 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 this practical and down to earth workshop we will explore some of the essential elements of what makes a house a home.
What we will discuss in this webinar series
- What does it really mean to have your own home and is it possible?
- Creating and holding a personalised vision for home,
- First steps to consider when creating a home of your own that’s unique to you,
- Living in your own home and settling in,
- A range of home options and creative supports,
- Addressing barriers, challenges and fears,
- Home as a part of community and neighbourhood,

- Stories about people living in their own home with a range of supports.
