    People with intellectual disability and limited communication are more likely to experience pain from preventable and treatable causes. This is because their pain is more likely to go unnoticed. Therefore, support workers are instrumental in identifying pain in the people they support, and ensuring that people receive proper treatment.
    We are testing a pain checklist to see whether it can help disability support workers identify pain in adults with intellectual disability and limited communication.
    Participation in the research involves completing a free online course about pain in intellectual disability (up to 25 minutes) and completing a survey and a pain checklist.

    Use the following link to access the course https://learning.scopeaust.org.au/

    You’re invited to attend the next online edition of our regular ATAG meetups:


    Live-Streaming Accessible Events | ATAG Online 22 July


    As a result of the COVID crisis, many cultural events – such as arts and screen festivals – are now being delivered online. This creates a whole range of issues in terms of access and participation for audience members who live with disability.


    PLATFORM Live was a fully accessible online multi-arts festival that was recently produced by Eastern Riverina Arts. The one-day event – which featured many of Australia’s leading artists and performers with disability – was supported by audio description, closed captions and Auslan interpretation. https://www.platformriverina.com/live


    Join us for this FREE online panel discussion with members of the PLATFORM Live programming and technical teams as well as artists who performed at the festival as they discuss how they approached the complexities of streaming a fully accessible live online event using multiple content sources.


    Learn about:

    • How audience members with disability engage with online arts and cultural content
    • How to plan an online arts or cultural event to maximise accessibility
    • The most effective technical platforms to use
    • Accessibility shortcuts for streaming online content
    • Creating sustainable accessible opportunities


    ATAG stands for Accessing The Arts Group. ATAGs are regular meetups for workers in NSW's creative industries who want to learn more about including people with disability in their professional practice.
