Adult Disability Resources

I support adults with learning disabilities and am looking for resources to help them become more independent as pedestrians by teaching them road safety and using public transport. I would be grateful if anyone can provide me with such resources, or know where it can be found.

Hi Waiel

It was before my time in Road Safety but this was a resource that was used. Not sure if it still exists, you will need to research.

http://www.gov.scot/Publications/2005/07/19110224/02405

6.1.3 Paving the Way - Scottish Road Safety Campaign

The Scottish Road Safety Campaign resource 'Paving the Way' was produced in 1995 for use with adults and young people with learning disabilities. The resource comprises :
tutor booklets (for use by teachers, parents or carers)
an assessment profile booklet
24 A4 colour photographs
a set of memory jogger cards for 'on the road' practical activities

Our Authority has recently recruited Independent Travel Advisers that may be able to assist with your query. Please email me if you are interested in further details.
