This presentation was delivered by Ric Thompson at Family Advocacy's 2007 Odyssey Conference.

In this presentation, argues that it is not until we re-define community and our relationship with it that we will truly discover the power and potential of community. He suggests that successful community inclusion will not occur if we focus on the deficiencies and needs of people with disability, rather than the gifts and assets that people bring. A great article and video for anyone keen to enhance the community links of a person with disability.
