SDHI is pleased to announce the next speaker in the SDHI seminar series, Professor Jan Walmsley (Visiting Chair, History of Learning Disabilities, Open University). The seminar will take place on
Thursday 10th November 2011, 3-5pm,
Room 2S17 Dalhousie Building
at the University of Dundee
The title of the seminar presentation is ‘Thinking about a good life for people with learning/intellectual disabilities’. Professor Walmsley will share some the conclusions that she and her co-author Kelley Johnson reached in their book, entitled ‘Towards a Good Life’ (2010). The presentation and discussion will look beyond what has informed progressive policy making over the past 30 years and will stimulate discussion about the issue of what constitutes a meaningful and good life by people with learning disabilities.
