Dare to dream to dance through life and say it how it is, her way.
Communication is no barrier to be successful in “World Normal”.
Nell would like to share her life tales of her guts and fighting against the odds to make an impact in the world. Believe in self belief.
Join us to celebrate AAC Awareness Month 2023 with Nell.
Nell is an artist, children's author, ABC writer, advocate and she also has an Order of Australia for her fundraising work for charities such as breast cancer.
Nell lives in a crazy body that has a mind of its own due to Cerebral Palsy. She has never used any communication device in her adult life to achieve what Nell has done so far. Nell uses partner assisted communication to get her messages and thoughts across in "World Normal".
By creating artwork and storytelling, Nell is able to show what non-verbal people are capable of doing. She hopes that this will shift perspectives, change attitudes and contribute to more inclusive practices in businesses and the community. Nell's aim is to help people with disabilities to overcome their limitations and be able to achieve what they want to in life.
Nell has recently begun as the AGOSCI AAC Communicator Co-Rep and the Coordinator for the AGOSCI Mentors Program. She is looking forward to her roles, she hopes that she will be able to grow the AGOSCI vision with her knowledge and help the community to live in a more inclusive world.
