Promoting the website
A website is only useful if it is used. Here is a flyer which can be used to draw attention to the resources of the website. For example, it can be given to
- parents at a session about multiples in school
- teachers before the multiple children join their class
- families interested in joining your research project on school-age multiples
The flyer has been prepared to show that the website is based upon solid research and has been created by people with extensive experience with multiples, education, psychology and special needs. For convenience, the same material is presented in two ways
Double sided website flyer (62k PDF) - easier if you want to make many copies.
Three-fold format website flyer (62k PDF) - easier for people to carry around or to distribute.
In both cases, the idea is to use these single-sided originals to make double-sided copies.
A space is deliberately left blank on the last section of the flyer to insert information about your local resources, research organisation etc.
We also have a flyer to invite people to join the Australian Twin Registry which also contains an explanation of what it is and how useful it is.
