Reaching potential: experiences of young people with intellectual disability

Disability services Intellectual disability Disability Youth Australia

Commissioned by the Limb Family Foundation, this report presents various life journeys of young people from across Australia. It identifies system gaps that are driving challenging experiences and opens a conversation about what is required to improve outcomes for them.

Young people should all have the chance to pursue lives of their choosing – lives that are rich with opportunities to learn, work, connect with others and engage in the community.

This should not be different for young people with intellectual disability. Yet these young people face barriers to accessing the support, services and experiences they deserve, driving inequities in health, education, social and economic participation outcomes.
