CALL FOR ABSTRACTS - EXTENDED UNTIL FRIDAY 21 APRIL 2017

The 51st Australasian Society for Intellectual Disability (ASID) Conference will be held in Hobart at the Hotel Grand Chancellor from Wednesday, 8 November to Friday, 10 November, 2017.

The Conference theme is “Pushing the Boundaries”.

It reflects the major challenges facing all communities who desire to realise the goals of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. In Australasia, it encompasses the issues arising from new approaches to service provision such as increased self-direction, choice and control.

We invite submissions from people with intellectual disability and their families, those who work at all levels of disability support services, academics, health, social care and educational professionals and policy makers.

Key questions for discussion include:

  • How do/can new disability service policies and developments push boundaries?
  • How has practice changed in response to current intellectual disability policy directions?
  • How can people with intellectual disability be listened to in policy and service design?
  • What market place practices work best to support participation and inclusion for people with intellectual disability?

More information about Submissions and Guidelines can be found on the ASID conference website
