About Social Inc.
Social Inc. is a program by Cerebral Palsy Alliance that seeks to overturn the stigma and social disadvantage around disability in high schools. We challenge youth to help change the perception of disability in their school through awareness, active social networks and engagement.
Why Social Inc?
- Research shows that Australian youth with disability were more socially excluded in 2011 than they were in 2001
- Peers are present as onlookers in 87% of bullying interactions, and play a central role in the bullying process
- Children with visible physical conditions or disabilities, such as cerebral palsy and Down syndrome, can be more likely to be excluded from social activities and called names.
