During our involvement in the one-year Diploma Course in CBR at the UNTL in Timor-Leste students asked us for a practical tool that they could use when going into the field. They expressed the need for a tool that allowed them not only to identify certain types of disabilities, but also to communicate the medical and practical implications with the people involved, often parents. We designed a series of pocket cards on 14 common impairments. The cards give a brief medical description, suggestions for basic interventions and leave room for referral addresses.
The flashcards are freely available in English, French, Tetun (Timor-Leste) and Amharic (Ethiopia) and will be provided on request. For enquiries, please consult firstname.lastname@example.org
