Today is my first day on my other new gig as Principal Disability Adviser at DHS! I’ll be helping implement the State Disability Inclusion Plan. Time to leave. I don’t want to be late. *walks from bathroom to kitchen table* Here!

I suggest this new scale for raising discomfort: 0 is completely comfortable, 10 is the period of waiting to hear back after a job interview. 😫

I had a fall today (I’m disabled, so I don’t fall over, I “have” falls). It rarely happens and I’m okay and really, after close inspection, I just want to congratulate myself on having such a clean floor.

Beyond thrilled to announce my new role as Creative Director of True Ability, a new theatre company for and by disabled people, together with AJZ productions. https://t.co/1UcbBMoJwJ

'Not correct' that robodebt caused suicides, former head of Human Services says https://t.co/6hEYosGv6A

This reeks of the false argument “guns don’t kill people, people kill people”. Heartbreaking. https://t.co/P4DeuFd3Gs

…absolutely must address the literal barriers and the dismissive attitudes and ignorance that exists in the mainstream medical profession and its services too. It’s costing lives. Article: https://t.co/Y9CaRSDwii

It’s a ridiculous excerisise from both a rights and financial perspective. Yes, there is some demand for specialist plans or treatment facilities that might offer things like a low sensory waiting room or longer appointments to cater for people’s access needs, but we…

Or someone might be waiting to be discharged from hospital, but because their needs have changed they need modifications to their home before that can happen. So in the meantime they’re stuck in a bed, when they don’t need it any more.

But the hospital workers also don’t know how to give that, so the disabled person can get stuck in bed or without a shower for an unacceptable length of time.

Often when disabled people go to hospital, there is difficulty in their support workers not being allowed to visit to provide their regular support.

One good thing about a plan like the one recommended in the report is that it might finally see health and disability working together at the government level. At the moment, people become ping pong balls getting bounced between the two.

The health system also remains very inaccessible in terms of the physical realm, too. People with disabilities will go to get a Pap smear for example, and be told the bed can’t lower to allow them to get on the bed from their wheelchair.
