Work with disability to enable a good life for yourself and others

Today we recognise disability as a part of human diversity. But what does it mean to work with disability in a way that enables a good life for ourselves and others?

In this course, you’ll have the opportunity to engage with some of the big issues facing disabled people, governments, and societies. You’ll explore human rights approaches to disability and critically examine the concepts of inclusion, access and support. You’ll also learn about disability politics and policy, advocacy and activism, and consider how to work with disability at multiple levels to enable a good life for all.

This course is suitable for both beginners and experts wanting to raise their awareness of disability and disability-related issues within a global context. It is appropriate for people with disabilities and their family members, friends and allies; professionals in the care and community service sectors; medical and allied health professionals; educators; built environment professionals; advocates and policy makers; scholars; and lifelong learners.

Working with Disability is an appropriate follow-up to its sister course, Thinking through Disability, which introduces you to contemporary understandings of disability as a dimension of human diversity.
