Disability Rights, Accessibility and Liveability is a unit of work that addresses the issues surrounding the liveability of places for people with disabilities. This includes urban planning for accessibility and liveability, community inclusion of people with disabilities, and strategies to improve the liveability and accessibility of places and services for people with disabilities.
In this unit, students have the opportunity to investigate the concept of liveability and factors that affect the liveability of a place, such as accessibility. Students explore how people with a range of disabilities may face difficulties accessing places and consider solutions for overcoming these challenges.
