Association for Children with a Disability NSW: publications reprints available
The Association for Children with a Disability NSW (ACD NSW) is a non-profit organisation run by parents of children with a disability seeking to help other parents. ACD NSW’s aims are to provide support and information for all parents, carers and families of children with any type of disability and to raise awareness of the issues facing parents, carers and families of children with a disability and to advocate for improved services.
ACD NSW has recently reprinted two publications which are now available for ordering:
Helping You and Your Family: This ‘pocket-size’ publication was designed for families with a child who is newly diagnosed with a disability. It deals with the issues that will face the family at that early stage, focusing on emotional and relationship issues, with a brief overview of the service system.
Cost: $5 per copy plus postage and handling.
Through the Maze: This larger publication is a comprehensive guide to disability services in NSW for families, parents and carers. It covers the stages from diagnosis of a disability through to adulthood. It is a guide to the services available and a key to understanding the way the service system works, but also provides information on advocating for your child and the financial and legal options available to support your child.
Cost: $15 per copy plus postage and handling.
