#SpeakUP Consultation Forum for Parents, Carers and Allies
December 8, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
New program for young people – we need your help!
- Does your young person miss out on doing activities at school?
- Do you know how to help your young person speak up for themselves?
- What would help you to feel more confident to assist your young person with skills to speak up for inclusion and participation?
- Does your young person have a transition coming up soon?
If yes – we want to hear from you.
#SpeakUP is a new program which supports young people to feel more positive about school, more confident to speak up about their choices and to have greater participation at school.
The program is also targeted at parents/carers to increase your understanding of the self-advocacy skills of your young person.
Participants will be involved in the co-design of the program. We are looking for young people (aged 7-14 years) with a disability enrolled in a mainstream school to join us in an upcoming focus group. We are also inviting parents/carers to share their ideas. If you are interested click here to register to join the Consultation Forum on 8 December.
