Cervical, breast and bowel screening is important for all people, but we know that 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 health inequality.

On this website you will find a range of resources designed by and for people with intellectual disability. There are also resources specifically for support workers, parents and carers to build their confidence in supporting people with intellectual disability to access cancer screening.

The website gives you access to:

  • an easy English page 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 learning program that aims to improve disability workers’ knowledge and skills to start a conversation about cancer screening

You will find tabs at the top of the page to help you navigate through the different parts of this website.

You can also click here to begin the learning program now.
