PMLD Link gone live

It was exciting to see that the UK based journal/magazine, PMLD Link has a new website.
There are heaps of back issues on there. Most excitingly, you can now subscribe online (1000 times better than my clumsy attempts at postal orders!)

New Resource: Listening to those rarely heard

cross-posting from an email from Jo - can't wait to watch this
Hi everyone,

Here is the link to the video Rhonda Joseph and I have been working on over the last year or so titled ‘Listening to those rarely heard’. This video has been designed to guide those who support adults with profound and severe intellectual disabilities to have their preferences heard through supported decision making. It has been developed by Scope with funding from DHS.

It accompanies a training package which will be online soon. However, it can be used as a standalone training tool. I need to reiterate that it has been developed for people who don’t communicate formally and although it has relevance to all decision makers it has been developed with these people in mind.

I will be presenting this at the upcoming ‘Communicate, Participate, Enjoy: Solutions to Inclusion conference’ in Melbourne next week.

Feel free to pass the link on to those who you think might be interested.
