    COUNT ME IN!

    A RESOURCE PACK ON DISABILITY ISSUES

    Star Rating: 4/5

    If you lack confidence in disability issues, then you must
    invest in this resource, writes Nicky Judd.
    Like a basic cook book, it clearly presents the risk level and
    materials required, as well as a simple explanation for each
    activity.

    Many of these issues will be familiar to youth workers, but
    discussion points are given to draw out specific learning around
    disability.

    One of the activities in the resource explores society’s
    disabling of people with impairments, while others cover subjects
    such as experiencing limitations, feeling excluded and recognising
    everyone’s gifts.
    If you have ever bought an overpriced games compendium to find only
    a few games are workable, this is a refreshing resource.

    It would be a shame if it were only used by those working
    specifically on disability issues. Better say: “Count me in!”

    Nicky Judd is a youth worker for Hampshire County Youth
    Service.
