The disAbilities Handbook was sparked by an idea from Stephane Bertrand at CKUT-FM in Montreal. At the 2009 National Campus and Community Radio Conference in Montreal, he helped host a panel on accessibility and community radio that featured people from his show, The Avalanche, and other people with disabilities from across the country. The session was packed and almost everyone had questions and stories from their own stations.
Later that week, he suggested creating a handbook (with an accompanying audio handbook — we are radio people after all) that would help support this important work. We scraped together some money, held a planning and production weekend in Ottawa, found Steffanie Pinch, our editor, funded by the Canada Summer Jobs program, formed an editorial committee (thanks to Paul Daniel, Rebecca Robb and David Robbins-Singh,) and now three years after Stephane first thought it up: you’re looking at the result!
