The Change Health Picture Bank


    Change, £60-£400 (depending on organisation),

    Star Rating: 4/5

    Change, a national organisation run by people with learning
    difficulties, has produced a bank of pictures to help with
    communication on health. It tries to cover all areas of health and
    uses some good examples to explain each topic, write Kathleen
    Franklin and Colin Gear.

    Some of the pictures are clear and easy to understand. However,
    some are not so clear, as in the “children taken into care”
    section. Some areas of health are difficult to explain with just
    pictures and Change has successfully got the messages across.

    Some pictures are small but the attached CD allows them to be
    enlarged for people with visual impairments.
    We liked this book and think that people with learning difficulties
    would benefit from using it with health professionals.

    Kathleen Franklin and Colin Gear are members of Milton
    Keynes People First, a self-advocacy organisation.
