These resources focus on achieving practice change and embedding new approaches to service delivery across the disability services sector. This section includes training packages for disability workers and tools to introduce concepts and frameworks such as choice and control and person centred planning.
Calvary Silver Circle has developed a series of training resources for disability workers. The training focuses on person centred service delivery and is a comprehensive resource for achieving practice change in organisations.
The "picture my future" case study and guide produced by Deakin university is an introduction to a framework for working with people with intellectual disabilities to set goals and make choices. The resource promotes the concept of using pictures to help people with disability to express their desires and assists workers to encourage the person with disability through the planning and goal setting process.
The Mental Illness Fellowship of Victoria has developed the successful "well ways" and "building a future" training approaches for use by mental health peer educators. The organisation has now updated these approaches to consider specific issues relating to the implementation of the NDIS including participant choice and individualised service delivery.
