The 47th annual Australasian Society for the Study of Brain Impairment (ASSBI) conference was held in Sydney on May 2 – 4. We had 6 of our researchers presenting at the conference on a range of topics. These included the experience of the built environment for people with complex needs and disability, mental wellbeing in individualised housing, hospital discharge planning and individualised housing and supports for individuals with multiple sclerosis.

Dr Kate D’Cruz (pictured above) presented the findings of a study on co-designing with people with neurological disability and talked about the obstacles and opportunities for authentic, collaborative practice.

Co-design was a prominent theme of the conference embracing the importance of the voice of individuals experiencing and impacted by neurological disability.

The conference was an incredible opportunity to share our research with peers and colleagues. Our research team are always excited to share our research findings please reach out if you have any questions research@summerfoundation.org.au.
