Disability services on show
Tuesday, 31st August, 2010
Twelve services presented at a free seminar yesterday to demonstrate the range of options available to local students with a disability.
The seminar, called "Career Toolbox for People with a Disability", was held at the BH Community Centre.
It aimed to deliver information and advice to students and their parents, as well as education staff and service providers, about the types of services and programs available when they finish school.
Cynthia Fitzpatrick from the National Disability Co-ordination Officer Program, a chief organiser of the event, said it was targeted at students who were in support classes at school, and helping them move into further education.
She said the event had been a great example of students being supported, as well as a good networking opportunity for services who were working to the same ends.
