Association for Children with a Disability

We have produced several films for the Association for Children with a Disability over many years.  The most recent production is Learning to Lead which will be launched late in 2011.  Learning to Lead aims to empower families from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds to take the lead in planning for their child with a disability.  The film features families from Vietnamese, Chinese and Arabic backgrounds and has been translated and subtitled into those languages as well as English.

In 2002 Sarah Barton produced a half hour documentary for the Association for Children with a Disability called Sharing Our Story. In this film five families share their experiences of raising a child with a disability. In 2009 Sarah revisited these families for the prodution of Sharing Our Story Revisited. Here we see how much and how little has changed for these families seven years later.

In 2010 Fertile Films completed the Inclusive Classroom Education Resource which consists of four short videos for teachers about how best to include children with disabilities in mainstream schools. You can watch the videos on the ACD website by clicking here.
