Event Description

Many positive changes have occurred in recent years regarding attitudes towards respite supports for individuals with disability. Today, we realize that respite support should not only benefit the family, but also the individual. This philosophical shift helps us to shrug off the cloak of custodial care and paternalistic practices and it emphasises the strengths and gifts of individuals with various abilities.

Available as a recorded webinar
