Critical Bridges was developed by the Disability Council and the Department of Education. Lots of people have a hard time as they go through changes when moving from one stage of life to another. It covers how people with disability deal with changes. You can watch the three sections of Critical Bridges on the YouTube links below:
This is a report that was written for the Disability Council and it is about people with disability who have children who attend school. It covers the first day of school and all the forms you need to fill out. It also talks about how to get to know the school, the teachers, the staff and other parents. Sometimes it is easy and sometimes it's hard.
There are two different copies you can download, one is in PDF format, and one in Word format.
It's called, "More than Getting Through the Gate" because getting through the gate of the school is just the first thing you do when your kids go to school. There is a lot more to it than that.
Many people with disability are unhappy because people in Government say they are going to consult with them and then they don't consult. Or they do talk to them, but they don't take any notice of what they say. Or they give little notice to go to a meeting.
This article covers how to consult with people with disability. It is for Government and other organisations too. We hope they will change the way they talk to people with disability after they read it.
