Welcome Home Workshop

In this workshop, through the journey of others, we will explore innovative and interesting ways to empower and assist individuals to create a home of their own. Home is a vital part of our lives. It not only provides us with security, privacy, comfort and control but it reflects our identity, our deep sense of who we are and how we connect and belong in our neighbourhood.  Yet for many people, particularly with intellectual disability and Autism, home is designed by others with little control over the decisions that most people take for granted.

Professor Keith McVilly PhD, Foundation Professorial Fellow for Disability and Inclusion, University of Melbourne  presents the findings of the Individual Supported Living (ISL) project which evaluated 130 adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities living in their own homes with the necessary support. Keith will be joined by two families who will share their journey to support their sons to live in their own home with individually tailored supports.
