Feature on the International Day of People with Disability website

This just in!

I have been featured on the International Day of People with Disability website.

So many exciting things have happened this week! More news to come soon.
International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is a United Nations sanctioned day that aims to promote an understanding of people with disability and encourage support for their dignity, rights and well-being. The day also seeks to increase awareness of the benefits of the integration of people with disability in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life.
IDPwD brings together individuals, businesses, community organisations, and governments from every corner of the world to celebrate and acknowledge the contributions, skills and achievements of people with disability.
In 1992, at the conclusion of the United Nations Decade of Disabled Persons (1983-1992), the General Assembly proclaimed 3 December as the International Day of Disabled Persons.
Since 1996, the Australian Government has provided funds to promote and raise awareness of IDPwD around Australia, through the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA).

More information on the Australian Government's support for people with disability can be found on the FaHCSIA website and the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations' website.
