When working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, it’s essential to listen to their needs and heed their hard-earned wisdom – especially when working with a child and family
living with a disability.
This series of tip sheets have been co-designed with Aboriginal families who care for children living with disabilities.
It is primarily designed for non-Indigenous workers supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families where a child is living with a disability.
The information in these tip sheets comes from intergenerational wisdom, generously given to help other families and children.
There are no easy answers in this work, nor one single way of working.
Instead, these tip sheets present important themes for non-Indigenous workers to be aware of; things to think about, reflect on and be curious about.
