New resources: online, a film, a book

'Disability Standards for Education: A Practical Guide for Individuals, Families and Communities' 
University of Canberra -  Education Institute, 2014
A free, web-based resource  about rights, reasonable adjustments, what’s fair, and working together with schools through stories, videotapes, resources, glossary, facts sheets and interactive questions.

The Interviewer 
The multi-award winning 2012 short film, The Interviewer, made by Australia's Bus Stop Films, continues to impress audiences internationally.  One of its stars, Gerard O'Dwyer, has recently been in Russia promoting it at an international film festival, and it has recently been well received in Germany:
It shows that inclusion and the rights of people with disabilities are topics that can be addressed by challenging, rather than affirming, stereotypes.
The Interviewer is now available through Sproutflix to purchase on DVD or by downloadAll proceeds from sales go directly back into Bus Stop, a  not-for-profit organisation making inclusive films. You can also enquire at Bus Stop about ordering a DVD directly from them.
