Many general staff in universities come into contact with people with disability, eg in the course of their work. For example, in the library, car park, cafeteria, university shops and services.
This guide was developed by the Universities Disabilities Co-operative Project (NSW) to assist staff working in universities to interact more effectively with people with disabilities. The booklet is in four parts, Part 1 Emergencies, Part 2 General hints on how to interact positively with people with disabilities, Part 3 A range of disabilities and ways of communicating with or assisting people with those disabilities, and Part 4 a glossary.
The definition of disability used in Interactions is based on that found in the Commonwealth Disability Discrimination Act 1992.
