Stopping Groundhog Day in disability services

From Nine To Noon, 9:20 am on 13 April 2018

A common complaint in disability services is around a poverty of experiences, expectations and connections for people with cognitive disabilities. Where for many every day can feel like Groundhog Day, with people stuck doing the same activities, on repeat. Vancouver-based Dr Sarah Schulman, CEO of Inwithforward wants to change this. She's behind a new online learning and volunteer platform called Kudoz. It's being described as like an Airbnb for real world learning! Sarah has been presenting to the NZ Disability Support Network conference and is working with a group of New Zealanders to establish Kudoz NZ.
