Life Stream Australia facilitates a wide range of opportunities specifically in South East Queensland, Rockhampton and Mackay to enable people with an intellectual disability to participate, develop skills and be active members of their communities.

Life Stream Australia believes that through participation in community activities, recreation, leisure & sport and having friendships and responsibilities, people develop all types of skills and lead healthy, active and meaningful lives.

Over the past few months the Sport team at Life Stream Australia have made some changes to the way we run our workshops we feel these changes reflect the feedback we have received in 2017 and look forward to meeting some new coaches and even seeing some we have met before.

Inclusion Workshop outline:

  • Intellectual impairment
  • How to speak about disability
  • Inclusion in sport
  • Impact of inclusion – Guest Presenter (Athlete)
  • Practical session
  • Inclusive coaching examples (videos)

  • Pathways  ( Including information on Global Games 2019 & NGA)

The Inclusion Workshop would definitely be relevant to the outdoor recreation sector. We cover general principles of inclusion as well as specific guidelines for inclusion of people with a disability in sport and recreation opportunities.
