Many media news stories teach poor attitudes about deafness and disability. In Zimbabwe, therefore, disability and media collaboration helped fix this. Together, they organized a training program. The training program trained media professionals and also people with disabilities. This manual guides trainers to lead a similar training program.

The manual published in 1999. As a result, some information is out of date. For example, it does not address online media. Nevertheless, some content is still useful today. Media professionals can update the manual for modern media. Disability and media collaboration is essential.

The manual also does not explain how to include training participants with different disabilities. For example, trainers will need to hire sign language interpreters for deaf people. But the manual does not explain this. Deaf trainers and trainers with disabilities can improve the manual. Deaf, disability and media collaboration can provide a more inclusive training program.
