About this Unit
Intersecting two socially and economically marginalised groups, Australia’s Indigenous peoples living with disability require services and supports that are both culturally safe and disability aware. Through this unit, future practitioners of the disability and Indigenous services workforce will be exposed to an Indigenous philosophy of disability that is characterised by a culture of inclusion, as a contrast to westernised medical models of disability. The unit will examine the unique exposures to social and economic marginalisation and discrimination encountered by people who are Indigenous and live with disability, and how these factors intersect as barriers to their access to service systems, supports and lives with dignity.
