Those who are nonverbal often communicate by use of a specialised device that requires the assistance of a personal facilitator. This process, while representing the preferred and frequently only method of communication for people with nonver...
Contemporary disability and rehabilitation researchers would probably be affronted by the idea that they may be exploiting research participants. The probable reality is that subtle and unintentional exploitation is occurring. The researcher stands to gain reputational and career enhancement while the participant’s reward may be a sense of having done something altruistic.

The site hosts students with a range of challenges to engagement, focussing on relationship development, personal accountability, self-reflection and broad education that engages students through transformative learning experiences. Using ISA, practitioners support students’ resilience through: re...
