Caroline Ellison

University of South Australia

I am Associate Professor Caroline Ellison. Crossing the Horizon Professor of Ageing and Disability and a Developmental Educator. I have extensive multidisciplinary professional practice, teaching and research experience across disability and human services in Australia and SE Asia. I am about engaging with people living with disability and those experiencing aging as co researchers and collaborators as well as academic researchers, mainstream society, the NDIS and Myagedcare, to create increased inclusion of all people. Approx 20-25% of the population live with impairment and we are all ageing. It is an economic, not just human rights issue, that we consider full inclusion of diverse populations in all societal systems. I am interested in systemic, societal and individual issues across sectors such as disability inclusive development, urban planning, housing, end of life choice and planning, arts, sports and leisure (how we use our free time), access to spiritual activities, positive behaviour support, protective behaviours and sexual health, family leadership, social role valorisation, the NDIS, Myagedcare and workforce development. The global theme of my research is to transform communities to be accessible and inclusive to benefit everyone.
