In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Growing Up Disabled in Australia is an incredible anthology that reveals much about a side of Australian society that is often overlooked by mainstream media. With a wide range of contributors from all walks of life, each story feels completely unfiltered and raw, and inspired me to rethink everything I thought that I knew about disability. This book will make you laugh and cry, often both during the same story. It will also teach you how to be a better ally and is a must-read for anyone working in education or healthcare.
Growing Up Disabled in Australia gives a voice to those who are too often unseen or spoken for by others. It implores us to recognise that disability exists only when society chooses to make life inaccessible for those who exist outside of what is considered ‘normal’. Primarily, it teaches us that being different is not a condition that requires fixing, rather it is the broader attitudes and prejudices that make life difficult for so many that need to be changed.
