About Speaking for Ourselves

Made possible by the Heritage Lottery Fund and our volunteers, the Speaking for Ourselves disability history teaching resource was produced to work within the National Curriculum, for

  • pupils on Key Stages 3 and 4
  • studying History, English and Citizenship

Other students or study groups looking at the social model of disability will also find Speaking for Ourselves relevant as an oral history of people with cerebral palsy.

Excellent pack for key stages 3 and 4.
