Recently published work from a previous Australian Research Council project I was involved in now forms the basis of my work in therapeutic horticulture.
The project from which the article is written looks at the relationship between young people with cognitive disability and their paid support workers.
- •How young people with cognitive disability and support workers work together influences their identities and wellbeing.
- •Interpersonal recognition is mutually experienced by the young people and workers.
- •Organisations need to foster mutual recognition through practices that demonstrate caring, respect and valuing.

*In loving memory of JAIMSIE SPEEDING – co researcher with disability – who taught me so much about the lived experiences of people with disability and shaped my work in so many ways. I miss you as a friend and colleague every single day. You have shaped my work and it’s underlying ethos in so many ways and I’ll never be able to thank you enough for that.
