The Summer Foundation has developed a suite of materials that will assist people with disability who have complex support needs to make a short, personalised training video for their support workers.
This can be a good way to help them understand what is important to the person with disability, and how they want their support worker to act.
Steps to plan and produce a training video, ‘how-to’ videos and a guide for people who are going to support a person to make their own video are part of the resources.
The project is an initiative of the DSS, funded by the NDIS Sector Development Fund.
We hope to run workshops nationally in the near future for allied health professionals and support coordinators so they can be skilled to support people with disability to make their own videos.
