Disability Awareness Workshop

Coordinator:  Michelle Caird and Laura Phang

Wednesday, February 8th

Event Description

The Disability Awareness Workshop is a one-day program to teach 4th graders an empathetic understanding of physical, developmental, and learning disabilities.  The hands-on-activity based program is designed to help student’s understand how difficult and complex daily living can be for individuals with “Diverse Abilities.”  The workshop helps build a culture of understanding that is invaluable, with the goal to learn, through experience, that all individuals deserve respect no matter how they may look, act, walk or talk.  

Sign Up

Please consider volunteering to help with the workshop. You don't have to be the parent of a 4th grader to volunteer!!  We need about 20 volunteers to help in the morning (8:40 am – 12:30 pm) for 1, 2, or 4 hour time-slots. Volunteers need only be kind and compassionate; no experience working with people with disabilities is necessary
