The developmental disability information support center created a leaflet (Hokkaido version) for people who have developmental disabilities in the disaster area and those who support children. In the afflicted area, “There are various difficulties difficult to understand for those who do not know about disability”, and concrete introductions are given on the tips etc. when supporting.

Click here to access the center’s website (opens in a separate window).

If you have developmental disabilities, you may be uncomfortable with change or may show strong anxiety about lack of prospects. It is better not to say “Do not go over there” etc, rather concretely say “Please sit down on this seat”.

A consultation window of the center for development and disabled support in various parts of the province was also introduced.
