For many years people with intellectual disability have strived to achieve inclusive access to tertiary education environments. There are some good examples of success but full inclusionary practices that facilitate sustainable outcomes appear to be limited. Within Western Australia, people with intellectual disability have had limited engagement within the tertiary education system.
Lisa and Jesse will share their experiences of a parent and person with a disability attempting to access a tertiary education environment. Angus will share a review of recent research and programs plus concepts for an inclusionary model of practice in Western Australia.
