Individualised Approach

Can choice be individualised?

 

Individualisation 9

As a comfort term, ‘choice’ gives us a warm feeling. But it can also be a veneer which hides isolation and hopelessness, a decoy which gives the appearance of service improvements. Drawing on a FAHCSIA study funded to support implementation of the NDIS, Associate Professor Paul Ramcharan explored some of the underlying principles of choice and how, over a life-course, choice can be limited.
