Peer Mentor

Hey!  I am Cayt . I am thirty and I have Cerebral Palsy. I am in a power chair and communicate through a communication device, however the disability in no way stops me!  

I went through mainstream school, TAFE, and am currently in my fourth and final year of social work at the University of Newcastle. 

I believe in equality and work well with people of all different backgrounds and disability. 

 For fun I like to travel, go to concerts and theatre, go out with friends and play with my puppy.  

As a mentor I offer you: 

  • My experiences as a person living with Cerebral Palsy  
  • My understanding that everyone with this disability is different 
  • My experience with assistive technology as well my personal experience with wheelchairs, communication devices, switches, car accessibility etc.  
  • My experience of traveling with a wheelchair, hotel accessibility and flying when you have a disability 
  • My skills in rostering and problem solving for managing a team of support workers 
  • My expertise in navigating various education systems including mainstream public schools, TAFE and university
