Wish you knew someone to conduct Disability Awareness Interactive Presentations? Develop a Disability Awareness program through your association. Learn how to introduce a child’s peers, teachers, school staff, scout troop or community group, to the “common expectations” that they should have with a child or student with a disability. This session is for association leaders, parents, siblings, advocates, and teachers who are interested in creating understanding, empathy, and interactions with and appropriate expectations of a peer with a disability.

Presented by Kathy Becht:

• Professional and personal experience with children with autism spectrum disorders, Down syndrome, Cowden syndrome, fetal alcohol spectrum disorders, intellectual, learning, and emotional disabilities and deafness.
• Taught 10 years in Florida and New York Public Schools
• Worked with over 40 schools and 47 school districts throughout Florida.

I continue to be impressed with the depth of the board/professional workshops offered.
