You are working in disabilities. In the past that meant caring for people with disabilities. Today it means much more. You are supporting people to achieve their personal goals, as well as supporting their rights and independence. Above all your role is to make a difference. The changes that have taken place over recent years have meant that people with a disability can and do have greater expectations of what they would like to achieve in life and on how they would like to live. This means that they also have greater expectations of service providers. You, as a worker in the industry, need to support different people according to their needs, dreams and goals as well as allowing for their particular disability.

- Gain an understanding of a person with a disability achievement and struggles within society;
