Resource on Disability Awareness
A while ago Leonard Cheshire commissioned Nick Park and his creature comforts team to work on some animations about disability called Creature Discomorts. You may have seen some of the adverts on television. This are a great resource for exploring issues of disability and the new animations are especially good for discussing this issue in groups of young people as they focus on young people's experiences in school. Along with the animations themselves there's also a chance to see how they were made, hear about the people behind the characters and test your knowledge of disability with a quiz. Scripts of the adverts are also available for those who want to take the discussion deeper.
