Have you thought...
Whether we realize it or not, we all encounter individuals with disabilities in our daily lives. Some of these disabilities will be readily apparent and many others will be much less visible. "In Their Shoes" utilizes a hands-on, interactive format so that you may catch a glimpse of what it's really like to have functional limitations that substantially alter a major life activity.
"In Their Shoes" is one important step on the path to removing the hidden barriers that impact us all. As educators, it is important for us to embrace the spirit of the Americans with Disabilities Act by creating an inclusive learning environment that is empowering and supportive of the needs of our students and employees with disabilities.
We now invite you to participate in the "In Their Shoes" presentation. You'll meet some of our students with disabilities and learn about their experiences.
