A Young Adult's Guide To Flatting
This booklet is a guide to flatting and tells the story of 4 young people who have gone flatting
The stories contained in this booklet begin to help us recognise that a different reality is possible. If people with a disability are to be supported to live lives that are - in the ordinary sense - full and meaningful, then this can only be done when they are truly engaged in the shared life of our community. Hopefully this booklet will encourage other young people and their families to imagine better for their lives. For if we can imagine better, we can become better and seek out those who will walk with us towards what we know is possible, and away from the doubters and naysayers whose own fears and apprehensions would stand in the way of what is both possible and achievable in the lives of others.
NB: The library resources are available for ADSA library members to borrow. Unfortunately we do not sell direct to the general public.
