International Day of People With Disability

December 22, 2023 by Jess0Uncategorized

International Day of People With Disability is held on December 3, 2023. The theme for this year is: ‘United in action to rescue and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for, with and by persons with disabilities.’ 

This day is a great opportunity to be part of creating an inclusive and diverse community for the 4.4 million Australians with disability. In Australia, on International Day of People with Disability, the government, schools, individuals, businesses, community groups and organizations come together to focus on how to strive for inclusivity with the annual theme in mind. 

The goal of International Day of People with Disability is to promote community awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability. Therapy Care is championing these efforts to continue to raise awareness and take the necessary steps to create a more inclusive environment for all people with disability. 

As International Day of People with Disability is an awareness day that is very close to our hearts, the Therapy Care team and community would like to celebrate the day by shining the light on some of our participants at Therapy Care. 

We asked participants for some information about them and their disability, their current goals, what they enjoy about Therapy Care and for some fun, if they could have any superpower what it would be!

Our participant, Leanne said:

Could you please give us an introduction on who you are?

My name is Leanne and I have cerebral palsy.

What do you wish people knew about your disability?

It’s just the way I am, it’s what I’ve got.

What are your current goals?

I would like to be able to go shopping! I would like to learn to read more because I always have baby books and I just get upset with myself and I give up. So that is what I would like to be able to do. 

What do you like about being a part of Therapy Care?

It’s excellent, everyone is helping me out, they’re all good people and I like being here. It is the best thing that I am doing. 

If you were a superhero, what would you want your superpower to be? 

No flying, I’m scared of heights! I would want to be strong!

Our participant, Milton, said:

My name is Milton and I’ve got a learning disability with reading and writing. 

What are your current goals?

I would like to go away and travel.
