Disability Speaks and the Intellectual Disability Association of SA (IDASA) have for a long time worked very closely with Flinders University on a number of strategic and innovative disability related programs. The input into IDASA programs by key University staff has been enormous and greatly appreciated.

It has proven a mutually beneficial partnership that IDASA and Disability Speaks are proud to contribute too.

Flinders University has high level international recognition for both undergraduate and post graduate specialist courses it hosts in Disability Studies and Special Education.

The quality of the courses and the knowledge and experience of the university staff are outstanding.

Students graduating from these courses have been highly sort for specialist employment roles.

Disability Speaks congratulates the SA Government, the SA Education Department and Flinders University on these wonderful new initiatives.


SA Education supremo Mr Tony Harrison should also be thanked for his deep understanding and personal commitment to supporting students with disability in the SA education system.
