People who are carers or guardians of a person with a childhood-onset disability, who is aged 40-65 years and who lives in New South Wales can also contribute a story as a proxy for the person with a disability, with that person’s consent.
These stories will assist Northcott Disability Services to better understand the types of transition experiences that people with disabilities face and the kinds of supports that might be needed for successful transitions. The information that will be gathered by the Adult Transition Project will be used to inform future service delivery to people with a childhood onset disability aged 40-65 years.
The project has received ethical approval from the Charles Sturt University Human Research Ethics Committee. Northcott is currently recruiting participants to share their stories of their experiences of transition for this project.
Completion Date: 31 December 2012
