This video shows examples of people with intellectual disability exercising choice, participating in a meaningful activity in their community, participating in their household, exercising autonomy, being treated with respect, and being in a social relationship with people other than a support worker.
It is part of the Every Moment Has Potential online learning resource for disability support workers – www.activesupportresource.net.au
The resource provides an introduction to Person Centred Active Support – a way of working that enables everyone, no matter what their level of intellectual or physical disability, to make choices and participate in meaningful activities and social relationships.
