  • Volume 41 Issue 2 - How do we support genuine decision-making for people
           with intellectual disability outside of the 'big smoke''
    • Abstract: Wark, Stuart
      Living 'rurally' remains one of the most significant barriers to accessing necessary supports. People with intellectual disabilities in a rural location are disadvantaged with respect to quality of life measures, and in being able to make meaningful decisions about their life. This article briefly reviews key background knowledge, and summarises what the research base recommends to improve the situation for rural residents with intellectual disability.

           improving oral health related well-being of people with intellectual
           disability: A review report
    • Abstract: Kangutkar, T; Watson, J; Calache, H
      Poor oral health has a significant impact on systemic health and quality of life. People with intellectual disability have poorer health outcomes and experience greater difficulties in accessing dental services as compared to the general population (Grant, Carlson & Cullen‐ Erickson 2004; Pezzementi & Fisher, 2005; Wilson et al., 2019; Cumella et al., 2000; Gabre, Martinsson & Gahnberg, 2001). Education and training programs are effective interventions in improving knowledge, attitudes and skills of medical and dental professionals, people with intellectual disability, and their support workers and carers (Fickert & Ross, 2012; Kay & Locker, 1998; McDermott et al., 2012; Heller, Hsieh & Rimmer, 2004; Ravesloot et al., 2007; Rimmer & Braddock, 2002; Frenkel, Harvey & Needs, 2002; Altindag et al., 2006; Taggart, 2014; Minihan et al., 2011; Rillotta & Nettelbeck, 2007). In order to guide research in this area, the global literature was explored to ascertain what educational interventions have been implemented in this area of special needs dentistry (SND) and identify current gaps in the literature. A systematic review was conducted to document the effectiveness of implementing education/ raining programs across multiple disciplines to improve oral health related outcomes among people with intellectual disability. This report is a summary of that systematic review's key findings.

    • Abstract: Johnsson, Genevieve; Bulkeley, Kim; Crowe, Bryony
      Positive behaviour support is a much-needed service in rural and remote communities for children and young people with autism. This mixed methods clinical trial will compare the outcomes for participants who receive positive behaviour support via telepractice with in person services. Preliminary insights reinforce the importance of adopting a comprehensive change management approach when implementing telepractice as a new approach to service delivery to achieve optimal outcomes.

  • Volume 41 Issue 2 - Developing a regional service in South Australia
    • Abstract: Firstbrook, Ruth
      The Riverland of South Australia is comprised of a series of towns located along the Murray River with distances of between 180km to 250km from Adelaide. In the 1980's services for people with intellectual disability were provided by non-government services coordinated by the South Australian Government through the statutory authority of Intellectual Disability Services Council (IDSC). The local management of IDSC identified a group of families in desperate need of accommodation support services for their sons and daughters who were shortly the leave the local Riverland Special School. No local services were available for this cohort of young people who, together with intellectual disability, presented with complex needs and behaviours of concern.

  • Volume 41 Issue 1 - Everyone has a 'voice' in achieving better outcomes in
           oral health for people with an intellectual disability
    • Abstract: Zylan, Richard
      The Oral Health of individuals with an intellectual disability is not only important from the traditional 'healthy mouth' perspective but has also been clearly linked to the overall health of the individual. Poor oral health has not only been associated with dental decay, mouth abscesses and inflammation of the gums but has also been linked to gum disease (periodontitis), cardiovascular disease, and diabetes (Watanabe, 2011).

  • Volume 40 Issue 4 - Community radio providing opportunities for voice in
           Brisbane and beyond
    • Abstract: Stewart, Kim; O'Dea, Paul; Cherry, Michael
      Everybody has a right to participate in the democratic dialogue of our communities, to express their needs and shape cultural change. Participation in the media is one way that we can do this, however the mainstream media often do not value or encourage diversity and are not representative of broader society (Ellis, 2016). Participation in citizen media, which makes self-representation a priority, can be a remedy to both lack of participation and misrepresentation. Community radio in Australia was created for that purpose (Community Broadcasting Association of Australia, 2008). This article describes work and research, much of it done in collaboration with people with intellectual disability, that emphasizes the value of listening well to voices of people with disability and supporting them to reach a broadcast audience regardless of their skill or speech capacities.

  • Volume 40 Issue 3 - Katie's journey - before the NDIS and how it's helped
           change her life
    • Abstract: Tucker, Victoria
      Katie attends WWILD women's group and is, as we say, is a WWILD woman. She is a 55 year old Mununjali woman, originally from Beaudesert, who only started receiving her NDIS package last year. Prior to this she received very little paid support from state government agencies. She and her family moved to Brisbane when she was 8 years old. She was one of 10 siblings, and she and one of her sisters have varying developmental disabilities with high needs. She and her sister received institutional education and care from that age, but she still saw a lot of her family growing up, such as coming home for the weekend. As children they were forced to live in separate homes which both found very difficult - Katie still talks about that sometimes, looking very sad, when talking about her sister, as does Jean. She and her sister experienced sexual, physical and other forms of abuse within the group homes and while living in the community. They have been significantly traumatised by these experiences, as have her family. Despite this, Katie later met her partner in a group home/sheltered workshop, as he has an intellectual disability as well. They moved into a rented flat approximately 15 years ago, and Katie says they are happy together and like not living in a group home. Katie's sisters and her partner's sister have assisted with organising the unit and cleaning support. Katie had to rely on the limited formal support her partner received e.g. banking, bills, and grocery shopping alongside him as she obviously needed the assistance. Katie is also under the state Public Trustee. Katie has continued to work in a sheltered workshop from when she left school till now, for 35 years, and only started receiving her own paid support hours (3 hours per week) by that same organisation, about 6 months before the NDIS rolled out. Katie's family help her out when they can on the weekends. Her sisters Jean and Sarah are the main family supports still left. They also support her other sister who now lives in 24 hour supported accommodation under the NDIS in Brisbane.

    • Abstract: Taylor, David
      Loneliness is a big problem in lots of parts of the world including Australia. According to one study 1 out of 6 Australians said that they felt lonely for long periods of time. Loneliness and isolation effects everyone but people with disabilities face many additional challenges to forming close lasting relationships. This is very troubling because many studies have shown that having close social connections is important for staying healthy and having good mental health.

      What led you to work in this area'

      I've worked alongside people with disability my whole working life. In that time, I've been lucky enough to have colleagues with intellectual disability who gave me really important direction. My first piece of research in the mid-1990s was as a practitioner researcher alongside self-advocacy leaders Robert Strike and the late, great Kim Walker - what an introduction to how research could be! Without their guidance, I wouldn't have taken on my PhD research, which was about the emotional and psychological abuse of people with intellectual disability in disability services. Since then, pretty much all of my work has been co-produced with people with disability, and I've tried to make sure it is generated from their priorities. This has taken us into such interesting and important territory - relationships, violence and abuse, loneliness, belonging, quality of support - and also translated into the way we conduct research and evaluation for government and NGOs.

  • Volume 40 Issue 3 - Research in supporting people with complex
           communication needs
    • Abstract: Iacono, Teresa
      As a new speech pathologist working in the western suburbs of Sydney, I found that seeing individual clients in a sterile therapy room somewhat uninspiring. Rather, I was drawn to local special schools and found myself working with children with intellectual disability, many of whom were non-speaking. At my first Speech Pathology Australia Conference, held in Brisbane - maybe around 1981 - I attended a workshop on Makaton sign vocabulary and its use with people with intellectual disability. By the time I got off the bus in Sydney (flights were out of grasp for a new graduate), I had learned all the signs in the Makaton booklet and was eager to convince the principal of the local special school that signs were the way to go. As I explained what and why, I realised this principal was busy practising the signs from the booklet I had put in front of him. Within the first sessions, we were seeing children who, up to that point had not been able to make their basic needs understood, suddenly communicating. Use of signs and other forms of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) became my clinical focus, but I didn't want to just implement this intervention, I wanted to move the field forward as it was so new to speech pathology.

    • Abstract: Gore, Nick
      In 2011 the abuse of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities who display behaviours that challenge was exposed in a UK broadcast following undercover investigation of Winterbourne View (secure) Hospital. The horrific scenes prompted media attention, public outcry and governmental commitments to safeguard and ensure better support for people with disabilities, through improved community services and a radical reduction in use of inpatient facilities (Department of Health, 2012).
