Young People with Complex Support Needs: Knowledge Exchange for Research, Policy and Practice
Who:Intellectual Disability Behaviour Support Program
Venue:Room 221/223 John Goodsell Building
When:5 Apr 2017, 2pm - 5pm

The Intellectual Disability Behaviour Support (IDBS) program at UNSW invites stakeholders to a roundtable on knowledge exchange (KE) to address the complex support needs experienced by some young people. ‘Complex support needs’ is the term used to indicate overlapping forms of disadvantage, which may include out of home placement or housing insecurity, cognitive impairment, psychosocial disability, contact with the justice system, educational disengagement, and/or cultural marginality. The complexity in these young people’s lives emerges from failures of support systems and services. KE is the process of making the best use of lived experience, research evidence and front line knowledge to improve the impact of research, policy and practice. Effective KE is crucial to improving the lives of young people with complex support needs.
