CDS is delivering a Person Centred Active Support Train-the-Trainer program (funded by FACS ADHC) to supported accommodation providers that have expressed their interest for this training.
As part of this program CDS will also be hosting a NSW Person Centred Active Support Community of Practice that is open for public registration. Supported accommodation providers not participating in the Train-the Trainer program are encouraged to participate. The first community of practice event will be held on Wednesday 18th November 2015 in Sydney.

1 day Inclusive Education Forum
18 November 2015
The Inclusive Education Program is a pioneering two-year scheme run by the Centre for Disability Studies for people with intellectual disabilities who want to explore tertiary education at the University of Sydney. The program is modelled on fully inclusive initiatives in Canada and the US. There are currently only two programs of this kind in Australia.
At “Inclusive Education: Opening up university life” a range of speakers will share information and stimulate discussion to positively influence inclusive tertiary education in Australia.
This event is open to people from a broad range of backgrounds who are interested in learning more about inclusive tertiary education for people with intellectual disability.
More speakers to be announced!

What is the I-CAN?
The Instrument for the Classification and Assessment of Support Needs (I-CAN) v5 is a support needs assessment, planning and resource allocation tool designed to assess and guide support delivery for people with disabilities including people with mental health concerns. Version 5 of I-CAN has improved user friendliness, flexibility and wider applicability. Research shows I-CAN is a valid, reliable tool.
