Throughout the course of this Disability: The Inclusion Project unit, you will gain a thorough understanding of some of the challenges that individuals with disabilities and their family members commonly face. This includes investigating and conducting research into social inclusion and cultural influences, as well as critiquing Australia's current approaches to disability legislature and services.
Open Universities Australia in partnership with Griffith University has carefully designed this unit to give students a balanced and in-depth knowledge of how contemporary Australian policies handle the challenges faced by individuals with disabilities. The unit comprehensively reviews programs such as the National Disability Insurance Scheme, and you will learn about the governments' political views on disability. This encompasses issues such as disability among Aboriginal Australians; the admission of migrants with disabilities; and disability issues that affect employment, education and housing.
Throughout Disability: The Inclusion Project, you will also conduct broad research and will read materials from a vast selection of sources. Once you have gained a sufficient understanding of the topics surrounding disability in contemporary Australian life, you will be required to undertake a research project that aims to address gaps in policy, potential opportunities and the challenges that Australians with disabilities currently face.
