A Selection of Audiovisual Materials on Disabilities.
Mayo, Kathleen; Rider, Sheila
Disabled persons, family members, organizations, and libraries are often looking for materials to help inform, educate, or challenge them regarding the issues surrounding disabilities. This directory of audiovisual materials available from the State Library of Florida includes materials that present ideas and personal experiences covering a range of disabling conditions, including autism, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, hearing impairment, loss of limbs, mental illness, mental retardation, paraplegia, spina bifida, and visual impairment. Issues that relate to these conditions include assistive devices, attitudes, independent living, institutionalization, motivation, physical accessibility, rehabilitation, and sign language. Each entry in the directory includes information on target audience, format (audiocassette, 16mm film, slides, 3/4" videocassette, or VHS videocassette), length of time, producer, and year of release; a brief annotation; and a list of subjects covered (including an indication of the type of disability addressed). Instructions for requesting materials from the State Library of Florida are provided. (GL)
