at the Hotel Realm, Canberra.

The ATEND Pathways Conference is a bi-annual event organised by the Australian Tertiary Education Network on Disability (ATEND).

Pathways 13 centres around the theme; Changes, Challenges and Choice – embracing the future. The Pathways 13 conference will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Pathways in Australia. Exploring the past 25 years will enable us to look back since the first Pathways Conference in Geelong in 1991, and explore Changes in the field of higher education and training for people with disability and look forward to the Challenges and Choices of the future.

Heath shows his determination to complete his Bachelor Degree in Business & Human Resources using Eye Gaze technology. He says he started using Eye Gaze technology in the second year of his university studies and hasn’t looked back. His advice to others is to give study a go, you never know where it could land you.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WAqJ9oUqnuw
