A resource co-designed with parents with intellectual disability in Tasmania
Communication – It’s not a spectator sport
This guide was developed by community educators from Speak Out Tasmania as part of the Mainstream and Me project.
The role of the Mainstream and Me community educators was to
• run workshops for mainstream services so they can have the information and skills they need to work better with parents with intellectual disability
• develop resources for mainstream services from our point of view
• help mainstream services to understand what it is like for us when we use their services
• design resources together as partners
This resource focuses on accessible information and communication.
