Helping Students Understand (dis)Ability: An Experiential Class Activity

Children and adults with varying abilities or physical challenges are frequently misunderstood, ignored, stigmatized, and ostracized. In this session participants will have the opportunity to experience several simulations to develop greater sensitivity and understanding of disability issues. Professors who have utilized these activities within their classroom will lead discussions. Each participant will receive a CD with materials for future use in training counselors, educators, and students about how to interact with persons with disabilities in appropriate ways.
