Library Thursdays: Through the Maze: 2010 edition

The Association for Children with a Disability NSW (ACD NSW) have published a 2010 edition of Through the Maze: Information and support for parents of children with a disability in New South Wales. It explains what is available for children with disabilities and where to access early intervention, therapy, counselling and support services, schools, special equipment, legal and financial matters, medical and health issues, accommodation, transport, recreation, advocacy and a glossary of acronyms. It covers all disability needs so many services do not apply to children with Down syndrome, but the criteria for the services is made clear.

The information from the 2008 edition has been updated and reorganised. There are new sections on: feeding and nutrition, siblings, networking, alternate therapies, toys reading resources and the future of disability services.

The world of disability services can be confusing. This publication brings together the wide range of what is out there and is a very useful reference.

We have a few copies available for loan in our library or you can access the publication online at the ACD NSW website.

If you'd like to borrow this or anything else from the library, please call or email us.
