People whose injuries or disabilities hinder their ability to engage in vocational activities pose challenges for mainstream case management programs. This unit will explore key issues in the provision of non-vocational programs and long-term rehabilitation management for people with disabilities. Students will be presented with a range of innovative interdisciplinary rehabilitation management techniques in working with this group. Students will have the opportunity to explore disability areas of interest and examine a range of activities including leisure, sport and social skills programs that will be suitable for their chosen disability area. The unit will also cover areas of rural and remote disability management programs.
