Exploring the experiences and stories of people living with an intellectual disability (ID). The ID community is the National Disability Insurance Scheme’s largest group, accounting for roughly 30% of recipients, but their voices are often unheard or misunderstood. To try and change that, Wallara CEO Phil Hayes-Brown and Paralympian Don Elgin (Giddy Up) will speak to people living with an ID, carers, and families, as well as business and community leaders. Drawing on their own experiences and the experiences of their guests, Phil and Don will ask about what it really means to have an ID, how and where inclusion falls short, the importance of language, public perceptions of disability, and much more.
