Ann Greer explores the complexities of building a good life around a person considered to have multiple challenges. This presentation was recorded during the National Inclusion Conference, 2018.
What does it take to build a good life around a person with a complex disability? In stories and anecdotes, Ann shares her son Valen’s journey. Valen’s primary place in his family life is as a son and a brother not as a ‘challenge’ or a ‘burden’. He is an active participant in all aspects of family life and community life.
You’ll learn about the importance of:
- actively “listening” to behaviour
- working from a position of deep respect for the person with disability.
