Get Up and Go - Now!

Session 
Plenary
Personal Experience
  • Toby Hewson
Summary

The key aims of the paper are to:

  1. Encourage, persuade and motivate parents, carers, teachers and anyone who comes into contact with young people with disabilities, not to over protect them in their childhood; not to wrap them up in cotton wool!
  2. Motivate young people with disabilities to get up and go, to live a full life, no matter how severe their disabilities.

I will share a number of pivotal events that have shaped my life. And explore how they came about and influenced me.
