EDUCATION & OUTREACH 

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

― Nelson Mandela 

EDUCATION WORKSHOPS

Through education, we breakdown assumptions and initiate change for a more accessible world.

Our Communication Disability Workshops generally* include information on:
  • defining communication disability and communication support needs
  • the Human Rights Framework that supports people with disabilities
  • how to identify the needs of people with little or no speech
  • how to respond when individuals have had their rights infringed
  • what to do when something feels wrong
  • case studies to help explore the issues facing people with little or no speech
  • information about services and support available
  • how Communication Rights Australia can help

*  our tailored workshops will vary in time and content depending on the audience, topics discussed, and workshop goals.

OUTREACH

“Communication leads to community, that is, to understanding, intimacy and mutual valuing.”

– Rollo May 

In order to strengthen ties with our community, it’s important people know who we are and what we do. To achieve this, we disseminate information about human rights and advocacy via informal workplace visits, or via more structured setups such as expos, media interviews, forums and panels.

Through forming networks and partnerships with like-minded organisations, businesses, schools and governments, we form alliances with the aim of increasing understanding of people with little or no speech and their support needs, and improving outcomes for them.

Our outreach service also enables us to gain further insight into the various issues faced by people with speech and communication difficulties, and has enabled us to therefore take the necessary action to remove barriers and advocate for the collective rights of vulnerable members of our community.
