Resources for Aboriginal families

Disability affects families in different ways.

The following downloadable resources including posters, postcards, voices from the local community and a next steps flow chart, have all been developed as part of the Finding Different Ways project, funded by Disability Services Commission.

They have been created to provide the wider community with some key messages relating to:

  • How kids grow and learn
  • What to do if you are concerned about a child’s development (growing and learning)
  • Who to talk to if your family needs help
  • Facts about disability
  • Using disability services
