The Get That Good Life! Conference was all about identifying the things that make life good and how to ensure that people with disability have access to these. It provided attendees with countless strategies that create wonderfully ordinary lives for people with disability.
We’re delighted to be able to share most of the presentations as resources on our website. Browse this list of conference sessions, follow the links, and enjoy the replays!
Don’t settle for ‘doing something else” by Sarah Humphreys
Many children with disability have individual learning goals. These are often formalised into an Individual Education Plan. As a result, the student often ends up doing different work than their classmates.
In this presentation, Sarah Humphreys shared examples of how these personal goals can instead help provide access to the same learning as the rest of the class. In this section, the audience will be invited to share their own experiences. The goal is for participants to feel confident to not settle for “doing something else”.
