A dramatic take on being deaf within a hearing family.

Family dynamics are fractured when Billy's new girlfriend, who is losing her hearing, teaches him sign language and he begins to find his independence. The acclaimed and, sometimes, provocative, play, by Nina Raine, explores family relationships and the ways people communicate, whether they are able to hear or not. Katy Gosset talks to the actors who have learnt sign language for the production as well as both deaf and hearing crew members about making the play authentic. [more]

The Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind says it's been estimated that, of all published books, less than 5 percent are available to the blind, visually impaired and print disabled communities.

23/08/2015: The Big Birthday Bash - CCS Disability Action turns 80
CCS Disability action is taking the party to the people. This year it is holding 17 Birthday celebrations across the country to mark the 80th anniversary of the organisation. Founded in 1935 after much lobbying by the well-known orthopaedic surgeon Sir Alexander Gillies and launched by Rotary; the Crippled Children Society, as it was then known, very quickly had branches all over New Zealand. Wealthy benefactors donated land, homes and money to the organisation which originally supported children with spina bifida, cerebral palsy and the many hundreds of children who had been paralysed in polio epidemics. The organisation's name has changed, as has the way in which it works, but CCS Disability Action says it's still in the business of working alongside people with disabilities to enable them to have good lives.

18/10/2015: One In Five for October 18, 2015 - Perceptive Pooches
You can recognise a hearing dog because of its little yellow jacket. They work in the community to alert others to the fact the person they are with is deaf and, at home, their job is even more important. Hearing dogs are trained to respond to the fire alarm, the door bell, the telephone and even to the oven timer. They know to race up to the person they work with, tap them and lead them to the source of the sound. The dogs spend six months training at Hearing Dogs in New Plymouth and are then placed with people throughout New Zealand. It costs 30-thousand dollars to source and train each dog but the only cost to the recipient is a visit to New Plymouth and the day-to-day costs of keeping a dog. [more]

A sensation for the senses. Thousands of people are flocking to New Plymouth's new Len Lye Centre. The doors of the striking new 12 million dollar building opened in late July and, in the first three months more than 53,000 people have visited. The Len Lye Collection curator, Paul Brobbel says the exhibitions and building are proving to have huge appeal and are bringing in people who would not usually venture into a gallery. He says the building's been designed to cater well for people with disabilities and says it's been like a magnet; to people who live locally and to domestic and overseas tourists. Accessible tours are regular features on the Len Lye Centre calendar. Paul Brobbel says people enjoy the physical sensation of moving around the centre as well as having a sensory experience when they stand beside Len Lye's kinetic sculptures. "We try to think of them less as objects but more as performances …they perform like dancers but they also make a sound." He says the centre offers something for everybody. "You can't be in this room and not leave (without) having some sort of sublime encounter," he says. [more]
