Why set up the PIMDA weblog?

You may be wondering why I have set up PIMDA. There are two key reasons for setting up PIMDA. The first is to find out what are issues to / for people with PIMD in Australia. At the moment it seems like individuals have issues, however the capacity for responding to issues as a collective are limited. I do not know any agencies that respond in particular to the needs to people with profound intellectual disability. If there are let me know.
The second reason for setting up PIMDA was to strengthen the networks of people interested in improving the lives of people with a disability. There are many individuals out there working towards this goal – do we know who they are? Sometimes we may know people from a particular discipline or content area (e.g. knowing the people from the “communication” discipline) but not know people from the other disciplines that can complement working forward (e.g. knowing who is leading the way in terms of advocacy for people with PIMD).
