For better or worse: how have people with intellectual disabilities fared in a whole of disabilities framework?

Croft, Dierdre,

Academic Literature

2010

Since the early 1990s Australian jurisdictions have progressively moved towards a more integrated approach to disability services provision in place of policies and practices of the past that were based on the support needs of different disability groups.

This article explores the impact of a “whole of disability” service framework on the provision of services to people with intellectual disability, with a particular focus on the provision of accommodation support services to people with intellectual disability in Western Australia.
