2. Where can I find information about specific disabilities?
Parents are often a good starting point for information about their child’s disability.
Don’t assume that all children with a particular disability are the same. Even children with the same disability have different strengths and needs.
The Raising Children Network Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder website includes information about autism spectrum disorders.
The Better Health Channel website includes general information about disabilities and medical conditions.
The Bar None Community Awareness Kit for Schools provides information and curriculum support for teachers to enhance their knowledge and understanding of disability.
