Dementia Awareness Resources

In Australia, limited awareness of dementia in people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds often results in delayed diagnosis, poorer prognosis, and a higher burden of care on families and health systems.

Moving Pictures, an innovative multi-media project, aims to change this through the production of short films co-produced with people from CALD backgrounds. The Moving Pictures team has so far produced 27 short films in 9 different linguistic communities. 

For each language, there are three films: Detection and Diagnosis, Navigating Care, and the Carer Journey. The Moving Pictures films are based on the stories and lived experiences of carers of people living with dementia, and the expert views of key service providers, all videos feature subtitles in English. 

In addition to the short films, the team has developed comics to complement the films. The Moving Pictures comics are available on-line, but can also be ordered free of charge directly from the Moving Pictures website using the order form

Videos and comics are available in the following languages: 

عربى Arabic                     廣東話 Cantonese                     Ελληνικά Greek                     हिंदी Hindi                     Italiano Italian       
普通话 Mandarin           Español Spanish                       தமிழ் Tamil                          Tiếng Việt Vietnamese

Developmental Disability WA - School Support Resources

Developmental Disability WA (DDWA) offer a variety of educational resources, it is often more difficult for people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities to find a school they enjoy, where they have friends and are academically challenged with the right supports.

Research shows that one of the best ways to foster every aspect of your child’s learning and development is to enrol them in an inclusive school environment where they can learn with and alongside other students both with and without disability.

Some families may feel their child is best supported in a segregated setting. DDWA recognises that there are still mainstream schools in Western Australia where there is not yet enough knowledge or experience in accommodating the needs of students with disability. They aim to support your choice in schooling.

The information on their website is designed to help people understand what education options are available to them and how to get support should there be difficulties. Find out more here.
