Petria McGoldrickPartnerships – in working together, supporting each other, always learning & celebrating success. 
It’s been fifteen years since Petria McGoldrick commenced her role as a Disability Liaison Officer at the University of Wollongong. Though it’s been a while, she can still recall her role prior to this one; she was working in occupational rehab, based in the workers’ compensation area, and also assisting people from the community with disability to fulfil their work and education goals. Clearly, disability assistance is an area she has long been passionate about.  Read more about Petria McGoldrick

It's a busy time for the tertiary sector as high school students begin to turn their attention to their next steps. In the coming weeks, you may find yourself meeting with prospective students who are accessing the NDIS, and thus it is timely to share this NDIS Pre-planning Toolkit - "Getting the Right Support at the Right Time from the Right People". This tool is designed to be used before you start a tertiary course at university or with a vocational education and training provider and helps students identify what supports they may need, who can provide supports and how to access them. If you follow the link below, you'll notice that there are a number of specific resources for the most prevalent disability types accessing further education and training, including Autism and Deaf or Hard of Hearing.
