Connecting With Community

Jackie and her daughter, Hannah, tell how they have built an inclusive life for Hannah. This includes school. out-of-school activities, and relationships.

Jackie describes the ways that Hannah has become the author of her own life. She discusses the importance of valued roles, the Circle of Support initiative, and how that all translates into ‘teenager’ speak.

Hannah’s family self-manage her NDIS package. Jackie explains how they use this and other supports to help Hannah achieve her goals.
