What is WheelTalk?
An interactive program teaching students about diversity, acceptance and disability.
Presenters are Victorians with disability who are actively involved in sport and recreation.
At the end of the presentation, participants play up to an hour of wheelchair basketball, which gives them a physical understanding of what it is like to live with a disability.
