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.
