At some point in a career every teacher will encounter students with some level of disability or impairment.

 The University of Melbourne has recently released another two of their informative guides providing tips and advice that students with disabilities want teachers to know.  The new guides are the ones about Acquired Brain Injury and Anxiety.  Other guides cover topics such as Hearing Impairment, Mental Illness, Blindness, Dyslexia, MS, and mobility problems.  The guides can be found at http://www.unimelb.edu.au/accessibility/guide/.
