Royal Commission hears from us
The Disability Royal Commission held a meeting in Sydney.
It was about health care for people with intellectual disability.
Kylie Scott said doctors should ask short questions in plain English.
Tara Elliffe said doctors should use simple words and pictures and easy read.
Robert Strike said “Treat me as a person first and foremost.”
A message to all women
Some people think that people with disability aren’t capable of doing certain things.
They say “People who have disability shouldn’t be thinking about marriage.”
That is wrong, we are all equal.
We are strong enough, we can make it, we can still do it.
Why work is important
I like to work for lots of reasons.
I like to have money to spend on the things that I want, like going out for dinner.
I ran a workshop at the VALiD conference in March.
I asked people at the workshop to say why work is important to them.
Most people said having money means they can be more independent.
