Yes We Can! Learning Disabled People doing Research and Teaching

Yes we can! Learning disabled people doing research and teaching
Wednesday 11 November 2015, 4–6pm, Manchester Deaf Centre M13 9GH

You are warmly invited to a seminar celebrating some of the valued roles learning disabled people can and do fill, highlighting the crucial role of partnership research and teaching in tackling discrimination and social exclusion.

The free seminar will be led by learning disabled people who form the Partnership Steering
Group, which has worked for more than 13 years alongside academics in researching
and teaching about learning disability. Members of the Carlisle People First Research Group and SPICE (Supporting People in Community Employment) will also be contributing to the discussion.

Together we will explore the advantages and barriers to working in partnership and the unique positions learning disabled people bring to the process.

The seminar will be of interest to:
• Learning disabled people and their supporters.
• Practitioners and service providers.
• Policy makers.
• Self-advocates and self-advocacy organisations.
• Academics and students.
