Library Thursdays: New resources from Dave Hingsburger

New to our library this month are some video sets from Dave Hingsburger (see previous blog): The Whole Truth, a program designed to teach people with disabilities to know their rights and recognise when boundaries that lead to abuse are being crossed and how to deal with abuse. Many of the situations shown are very confronting. The program involves people with disabilities as teachers as does No! How!, a video written, produced, directed and acted by people with disabilities to teach others with disabilities how to avoid being a victim.
Also added to our library are 2 children's books from Hingsburger's Diverse City Press:
Avalanche on the Prairie, a fantasy adventure about a boy with Down Syndrome that saves a town with his friend.
Four Feet Tall, a story that deals with difference and acceptance. This book features a girl with an intellectual disability but not Down syndrome.

If you'd like to. borrow any of these materials or any others. please email us.
