Background:

Social skills programs offer one way for people to improve their skills and independence over time. There is evidence to suggest that when delivered effectively they can assist people to increase community and workplace participation, enhance social relationships, and support positive mental health. There is a need for programs targeting people with intellectual disability and/or Autism to pursue their social goals and aspirations that can be delivered in the NDIS operating environment and for which there is evidence.

Biography:

Emily Churchill is a speech pathologist who has been working in disability for the past two years. She is a strident advocate for empowering individuals to communicate and develop social networks, promoting the rights of people with disabilities, increasing their quality of life and supporting the process to achieve their individual aspirations.
