Library Shelf

Our Library is currently closed after the relocation of our office,and we are currently conducting a stocktake of the collection.
  • We have a copy of Using Storytelling to Support Children and Adults with Special Needs: Transforming Lives through Telling Tales by Nicola Grove on order. Nicola is an English Speech Therapist and academic. She was involved in initiating the OpenStoryTellers Project, a “social enterprise created to enrich the lives of children, and adults with learning and communication difficulties, using traditional stories and personal narrative.” 

The OpenStoryTellers website is worth a look while we await the arrival of the book.

  • A new edition of the Australian Autism Handbook was launched in Sydney last week, and will be of interest to families whose child is diagnosed with autism in addition to Down syndrome. It is widely available - directly from the publisher, from libraries, ABC shops, Big W and booksellers.
