Wednesday June 15th from 2-3.30pm online for a webinar:

 

What is the reason for this webinar?

The Decision Support Service are due to open their doors this Summer. At Inclusion Ireland, we are mindful of people who have higher support needs and how they can access their rights.

We want to make sure that there is always a presumption of our capacity, no matter what way we might happen to communicate, and that our will and preference for decisions big and small will be understood and honoured.

Our Guest Speakers:

Eilionóir Flynn: Professor in Law and Director of the Centre for Disability Law and Policy, National University of Ireland Galway.

Amy Fieldhouse: a Senior Speech and Language Therapist with St. John of Gods North East.

Tara Ghalaieny  a Senior Speech and Language Therapist in St Michael’s House

This event is open to everyone; people with intellectual disabilities, family members, professionals, supporters, staff, allies and friends
