Safeguarding the future conference - Canberra, 23-24 May 2024

Clarity of Vision

Wendy Strove is a parent and a strong advocate for inclusion. This presentation was first delivered at a Family Advocacy conference in 2007. Watch as Wendy explains the importance of having a clear vision for her son and what we can all strive for.

A life of purpose and contribution, connection with family, friends and community, meaningful employment, and typical life experiences seldom happen by chance for people with disability. But if you have a clear vision and action, what you hope for your child, then it is more likely to be realised.

Wendy uses the analogy of a compass to help us understand how people with disability and their families can use a Vision. It can help to navigate towards a purposeful, valued life, rich in opportunities for relationships to flourish.
