Just Like You
A guide to communicating with people with a disability
Duration: 23 mins 20 secs
This video allows people with a range of disabilities to speak for themselves about how service providers, support workers and colleagues can learn to communicate better with them. Manners are not something that come naturally, we all have to learn them.
Project developed by Fran Haarsma Productions and funded under the Workplace English Language and Literacy (WELL) Program by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.
“A very practical and contextually meaningful look at communication strategies for inexperienced people to gain some interactive strategies. Well worth a look!”
Disability Services Unit, Dept of Justice, Western Australia.
