Kate Arnott, who is legally blind, was shocked and a little bit embarrassed when told her emotional entry had won her a family pass to see My Dream, one of the world’s most inspirational stage productions at QPAC November 23-24.
It not unexpected that Kate is skilled with her words; she’s a tutor at Endeavour’s tertiary programme Latch-On Windsor where she tutors young adults with an intellectual disability in literacy and numeracy.
Kate is thrilled with the opportunity to experience My Dream, an internationally renowned production featuring artists with hearing, visual impairments and physical disabilities who counts Bill Clinton and Al Gore among its fans.
“Having various disabilities myself I feel it would be refreshing to celebrate the skills and talents of others dealing with similar challenges,” said Kate.
“This performance is a reminder that the world can be viewed in many different ways and that is something worthy of recognition, support and celebration.
Kate is a speech and language pathologist with extensive knowledge of literacy and is incredibly passionate about her work at Latch-On.
“Latch-On is an amazing programme – it empowers people with intellectual disability with computer technology to enhance literacy, self-confidence, independence and work placement opportunities,” she said.
Latch-On (Literacy and Technology Hands-On), an innovative literacy program for young adults with an intellectual disability developed by the University of Queensland.
The programme delivers literacy and numeracy classes which combine traditional teaching styles and technology instruction. It also delivers training in health and fitness.
The part-time, two-year program is delivered in small groups to students with an optional one-year extension. The program is currently offered in Brisbane as well as Bundaberg and Townsville.
