The Disability Awareness Workshop will be held at Lakewood on May 9th from 9AM -12:30 PM.
This a half 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 students 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.
Volunteers need only be kind and compassionate. No experience working with people with disabilities is necessary. You do not have to have a 4th grader to volunteer for this program.
Please consider volunteering for this worthy event. Lunch is provided for volunteers.
