A capabilities perspective on the personalization of people with intellectual disabilities’ care and support

Presenter: Toon Benoot, Ghent University

Systems of personal budgets for people with disabilities aim to contribute to the choice and control people have over their own care and support trajectory. The redistribution of welfare resources to service users is intended to contribute to quality care, individual autonomy and personal wellbeing. In this presentation, Toon will outline the key findings of his PhD, discussing how these policies, explicitly modelled as capability promoting policies, influence the practice of care and support for people with intellectual disabilities. Central topics are the notion of ‘a capable human being’ and the capability to aspire. He draws on a variety of data that reflects the voices of different parties involved in the support process: from people with intellectual disabilities, executives of care organisations and social workers who administer budgets.

Toon Benoot is affiliated to the Department of Social Work and Social Pedagogics at the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences of Ghent University. Toon works on pedagogics in a context of personalised care for people with disabilities. His fields of interests are: welfare reform, theories of social justice and the conceptualisation of autonomy and in(ter)dependency.

HDCA Teacher Workshop 2 – Teaching at Undergraduate Level

In this second event in our Teacher Workshop series we focussed on developments and ideas for teaching about human development and the CA at undergraduate level. We welcomed teachers who are currently teaching on this subject to join us for this event and the workshop was open to members and non-members of the HDCA.

Stacy Kosko (University of Maryland, US) presented a simulation exercise she uses with her students to think about human development ethics. This offered a rich insight into a group activity that enables key issues to be drawn out and developed in an engaging way. Stacy has kindly shared resources that she used in the workshop including her teaching notes and a map for use in setting up the simulation .  Please acknowledge Stacy and her colleagues if you choose to draw on them in your own teaching.
