Pathways13 30 november to 2 december 2016 

The 13 bi-annual Pathways conference will be held Wednesday

30 November - Friday 2 December, 2016

at the Hotel Realm, Canberra.

The ATEND Pathways Conference is a bi-annual event organised by the Australian Tertiary Education Network on Disability (ATEND). The conference brings together disability practitioners, NDCOs and a   range of other professional, academic staff and students with disability to identify and remove barriers for people with disability participating in higher education and training.

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.

The Opening All Options Learning Disability Resource (OAO) has been around for so long that Trevor Allen commented that it's now old enough to get its licence and vote! But that doesn't mean the content isn't fresh! On Tuesday we were delighted to relaunch the updated Opening All Options Disability Learning Resource (OAO) via a webinar. The information is now current and aims to improve the knowledge and skills of Disability Practitioners, Academics & Teaching staff about students with Specific Learning Disability (SLD). Did you miss our webinar? Catch up on the new and improved OAO here! http://www.adcet.edu.au/resource/9456/webinar-opening-all-options-learning-disability-resource-update-and-relaunch/

There is so much information available on the ADCET website to help disability practitioners in their role. Here, Alisha Larkin, NDCO for South East Queensland, tells us how the ADCET website has become a "valuable reference point" for her in her work. http://www.adcet.edu.au/disability-practitioner/disability-practitioner-in-residence/ [Photo shows students and teacher smiling while looking at computer screen]
