This true tale is based on the qualitative research study undertaken by Caris Jalla at Curtin University, Perth.
It shares the stories of four remarkable Aboriginal young people with different abilities, strengths and journeys.
2015 Student Award: “Yarning about Disability” by Caris Jalla, Curtin University, School of Psychology and Speech Pathology.
This research explores perceptions of health, wellbeing and disability by Aboriginal children and young people both with and without a diagnosed disability, as collected through yarning circles, a validated, culturally appropriate research methodology. The grant will fund the creation of a children’s storybook as an age and culturally appropriate method of research dissemination. The storybook will draw on narrations from Aboriginal participants with disabilities and will be developed with guidance from the participants and an Aboriginal Community Reference Group.
