New Year, new disability related blogs to follow?

Happy New Year AGCAS Disability Task Group blog readers!

First of all, apologies that we haven’t posted much to the blog recently. Blame the rigours of the autumn term and a bit of a rejig in membership. However one of our my resolutions is to remedy this with more regular posts in 2016…

Thinking about our blog got me wondering which other disability related blogs readers of this particular blog find useful/interesting/challenging?

I’ve no doubt highlighted this resource before, but one blog I like to follow is levelplayingfields, from the Additional Learning Support (ALS) unit at Bournemouth University. The ALS team offer information, advice, guidance and one to one support to and for students with disabilities and specific learning differences and their friendly, chatty blog reflects what they do. They regularly post interesting careers (and non – careers) disability related articles and videos – and even the occasional tempting recipe!

Recent posts include an item from Psychology Today featuring an interview with Kathleen Nadeau, a Clinical Psychologist and International authority on ADHD, on the condition and career success. It’s well worth a read and I never would have discovered it without the ALS posting it.

If you have any more ideas for other disability related blogs that you feel fellow AGCAS DTG blog subscribers might like, feel free to add your suggestion to the comment section below (and if possible tell us why you like it).

Roll on 2016 and let the commenting commence….!
