Achieving your Goals Webinar 

Knox City Council invites you to a special Parents & Carers online webinar.

Join this special event via Zoom to hear Lauren Pavlidis of CDERP (Centre for Disability Employment Research and Practice) discuss how self-determination assists people with disabilities achieve their goals.

  • ·How do some people with a disability manage to overcome challenges and lead independent, dynamic, successful lives?
  • ·What does success mean and how do they achieve it?
  • ·What internal and external factors play a role in how someone embraces a challenge?


In this webinar we will discuss the act of self-determinism in achieving success and independence, and how it can support your family member to become a self-advocate, a problem solver, and an overall contributor to the direction of their lives.   

If your person is looking for employment, further education, to move out of home or even better manage their time, the practices of self-determination will support your person to achieve those goals and go on to set more goals.  Big or small, these achievements can mean different things to different people.  However, it’s the practice of self-determination that makes the difference between overcoming challenges and waiting for the challenges to fix themselves.  Who knows, maybe you will even learn how to motivate your partner to do the dishes more often!
