Dr David Roy has lived through the worst trauma possible; knowledge that his son was allegedly abused whilst attending his special school aged 3 years old. This episode shares shocking details but also the inspirational advocacy that came from it. Lou and David discuss the events that led to David and his wife's drive for a Parliamentary Inquiry following the alleged abuse and neglect of their son and the ongoing agitation that David has found necessary to force change and reforms in NSW education.
There's also discussion of the Disability Royal Commission. Please listen to the Family Advocacy podcast series, "Talking Disability Royal Commission"
