Inclusion Melbourne - Discovery Program

  1. About this service

    Inclusion Melbourne works with young people with an intellectual disability who live, work or play in and around Brimbank.

    Discovery Program - Integrate education and relationship building:
     
    As you or your loved one finishes at high school, it can be easy to be overwhelmed by the amount of paperwork, financial requirements, decisions and choices. Many families are unprepared for the enormous changes that come when leaving school.

    Inclusion Melbourne’s Discovery helps adults with an intellectual disability and their families to transition from school to completely personalised support.

    Discovery reduces the stress on families by offering a semi-structured transition program that focuses on teaching people about:

    • The options available in their local community;
    • Service to the community;
    • Self-advocacy, rights and responsibilities;
    • Skills for everyday living, like using public transport, road safety, literacy and numeracy.

    This innovative program runs for 12 months to help adults with intellectual disabilities transition from school to a personalised approach, moving from a familiar environment to living in the community.
