Yolande Cailly

Committee Member

Yolande Cailly is a sole parent of two children who is passionate about equity in education. When her daughter who has an intellectual disability started school in a segregated unit she discovered a world of ableism. Thanks to Family Advocacy, Yolande was able to educate herself on disability rights, inclusive education and social role valorisation and decided to challenge attitudes and practices by moving her daughter out of a segregated unit into a mainstream classroom. Drawing on this successful experience she is now committed to advocating for an inclusive education for all students.
