Description

My Support Space Launch

Monash University and our project partners invite you to the launch of My Support Space.

My Support Space is an online resource which offers free education and information resources for disability support workers, health professional students and graduates, and Allied Health Assistants working with people with acquired brain injury (ABI) within supported living environments. The resource was developed by a project team from Monash University's Occupational Therapy Department, in partnership with people with lived experience of ABI and a range of community health professional and disability service organisations. This project was funded through the Innovative Workforce Fund from the Department of Social Services, managed by National Disability Services.

The My Support Space initiative complements the My Home Space online resource, which is now active (see www.myhomespace.org). My Home Space was developed with a grant through the Research and Data Working Group from the Department of Social Services.

My Support Space and My Home Space are both important and powerful initiatives that support a better life for hundreds of thousands of Australians with a significant and permanent disability and their families and carers - and strengthen the workforce providing support to them - within the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

This workshop will commence with a Ministerial launch (see above). Morning tea will be served, following which interested attendees are invited to register for a training workshop on the Care and Needs Scale and Overt Behaviour Scale-Adult. This workshop will be presented by the developers and trainers of these tools - Donna Wakim (University of Sydney) and Glenn Kelly (author of the OBS-adult). The CANS and OBS are two key measures used for National Disability Insurance Scheme access request and support needs assessment, and are commonly used in the field of acquired brain injury.
