Get informed. Get connected.
We’re providing information and content to support learning and action.
Explore what disability is, the right language to use when discussing disability, and accessible ways to connect with PWDA.
Power up with the knowledge to help make a difference.
Creating a better future for people with disability involves working together to better understand disability and the issues which affect people with disability.
So we produce a range of relevant educational resources to help inform people about disability-related issues and to connect with PWDA and our work.
Social Model of Disability
There have been many models used to understand disability over time. At PWDA, we use the Social Model of Disability to inform how we work to advance and protect the rights, health and wellbeing of people with disability.
PWDA Language Guide
Our popular Language Guide unpacks key factors which influence disability-related language, provides advice for writing about disability-related content, and identifies commonly misused terms and recommends suitable alternatives.
Read stories from our clients, members and supporters about their experiences and how they’ve engaged with PWDA.
We have a range of key information in Auslan videos for people who are d/Deaf or hard of hearing.
Easy Read info
We have a range of key information in Easy Read formats so that it’s accessible to people with intellectual disability, literacy issues or who don’t use English as their primary language.
