Resources

First Stop Transport - website launched
Transport for NSW has launched a new website today, First Stop Transport, where you can learn about how to make using public transport easier.

It provides an eLearning module about how travel training can help people with disability become more independent.



New DVD: Living with intellectual disability and dementia
Alzheimer’s Australia New South Wales (NSW) has developed a new resource to support people living with dementia and intellectual disability, and the individuals and organisations working in the disability and aged care sectors who assist them. 
The DVD Living with Intellectual Disability and Dementia contains information on assessment and diagnosis, and the support available for people living with dementia and intellectual disability, enabling their ongoing involvement in the community. 
It is also a resource for family members and friends who are concerned about signs of cognitive decline in a relative or friend who lives with an intellectual disability. 
Alzheimer’s Australia NSW provides ongoing professional education to both the aged and disability sectors, and free carer education sessions to family members and friends of people living with an intellectual disability and dementia.
Contact details are provided on the web page about the DVD


Easy Read information sheets
The Down's Syndrome Association (UK) publishes a number of information sheets in Easy Read format. Easy Read means simple writing with a picture to explain the writing.

Some are more relevant to UK readers, but others are useful everywhere.
