My Disability Matters
Disability advocate Dale Reardon has recently launched a website
called My Disability
Matters. The website aims to become the first one stop shop for
disability news and opinion, increasing the representation of
people living with a disability through their own words, views and
My Disability Matters has been launched to cover major issues
arising, including changes to the NDIS, and will offer advocacy and
agency to people with all forms of disability.
Mr. Reardon has been blind since he was 17
after losing his sight due to Leber's Optic Atrophy. He
has since obtained a Law Degree with First
Class Honors, has served as a Director of Royal Guide Dogs
Association of Tasmania, was the inaugural founding President of
Blind Citizens Australia, Tasmanian Branch, and is currently a
member of the NDIS Independent Advisory Council.
Mr. Reardon is asking people to complete a short survey to help
guide the direction of the My Disability Matters website.
The survey is designed to allow you to vent frustrations, share
perspectives and have your say in how the website can best deliver
what you are currently lacking in the online community - a
supportive, representative space that is defined by people with a
disability for people with a disability.
