Cervical, breast and bowel screening is important for everyone, however people with intellectual disability are not screened as often as they should be.

Just Checking is a project funded by Cancer Institute NSW to help address this issue through training, resources and accessible information that has been co-designed by people with intellectual disability.

On this site you will find:

  • an easy English page with information on screening tests and resources for people with intellectual disability
  • three videos featuring actors with intellectual disability discussing their cancer screening experiences
  • three social stories explaining the screening processes along with a glossary of words and their meanings
  • a support person’s tool to assist disability support workers to have a conversation about cancer screening
  • a short learning program that aims to improve disability workers’ knowledge and skills to start a conversation about cancer screening

You can use the navigation panel on the right hand side of the screen to view these resources.

Begin the learning program now.
