Ability Behaviour Support

During the transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), Australian people have an opportunity to imagine and co-create a better world for people with disabilities. The “don’t DIS my ABILITY” movement has a chance to take on a cultural-wide significance.

We focus on ability. That means our lives and the ways we work are strength-based, positive, empowering, and realistic with a tinge of optimism. Yes, we are all skeptical. Indeed, life is full of challenges!

Ability is not pie in the sky. Ability is real. Ability grows with personal and social capacity. This makes ability behaviour support very much person centred in the best meaning of the phrase.
