    Create Your Future. Personal stories of disability in study and work

    These original short films depict the real life stories of six men and women with various disabilities. We follow their stories through different stages of transition and participation in post-secondary education and employment.

    The films highlight the right of people with disability to access a full range of education or employment options. The unique stories also demonstrate the range of support that people with disability may access and raise awareness of the NDCO Programme as a resource and link for people with disability, the disability sector, and the community.
