Labelling the Disabling 

Tune in to The Disability Trust’s podcast to hear from guests as they explore the intersections of disability, human rights, social justice, and the NDIS.  

In the latest episode, Jerome Etteridge talks about his goal to become the “face of autism” in Australia and how he is working to ‘normalise’ autism and the experience of ‘being on the spectrum’.

The Summer Foundation’s Reasonable and Necessary podcast aims to simplify the NDIS for participants, their families, and anyone supporting NDIS participants.  

In the latest episode, Dr George, along with El Gibbs, Nick Avery, Jarrod Sandell-Hay and Sam Paior discussed the NDIS Review, all the big changes and what they might mean for NDIS participants.
