Limb Family Foundation: Reaching Potential report

Young people should all have the chance to pursue lives of their choosing – lives that are rich with opportunities to learn, work, connect with others and engage in the community.

This should not be different for young people with intellectual disability. Yet these young people face barriers to accessing the support, services and experiences they deserve, driving inequities in health, education, social and economic participation outcomes.

Commissioned by the Limb Family Foundation, Reaching Potential: Experiences of young people with significant intellectual disability presents various life journeys of young people from across Australia. It identifies system gaps that are driving challenging experiences and opens a conversation about what is required to improve outcomes for them.
