The Master of Disability Practice is a fully online course designed and taught by leading researchers from La Trobe University’s Living with Disability Research Centre. The Living with Disability Research Centre is a research centre which specialises in the understanding and improving practice and service systems that support people with cognitive disabilities to be included in society. This course provides professionals working in diverse contexts with an opportunity to develop knowledge and skills to enhance their confidence and practice in working directly with people with disabilities and their families. Students will be equipped to understand the current disability landscape at a time of significant reform and tackle disadvantage through system level change. Students will gain a strong grounding in research methods including literature review and undertake a supervised industry project in a disability-related field, culminating in the submission of a minor research thesis.
