Journeys Over Time

This comic book tells the stories of three very different families over three life stages.

Each story explores coping with the different ways their children learn and behave and how the families access support.


Djarmbi, The Different Kookaburra Story Book

The storybook is a resource for both parents and teachers. It introduces the sensitive topic of ‘difference’ through the use of a bush animal that is indeed different to the rest of his community. Parents and teachers can share this story with children as a starting point to understand difference.
