This session will include an overview of the ways in which disability has been viewed in the U.S. throughout history and offer suggestions for interacting effectively with people with physical and sensory disabilities. A case scenario activity will provide participants with an opportunity to think about how ADA and their own views of disability impact interactions with clients and colleagues with disabilities.
The Citizen-Centered Leadership Development Community of Practice series is a unique combination of self-paced distance learning study, robust field work, interactive class assignments and live webcast instruction designed to advance theoretic and skill-based learning leading to quality outcomes in the lives of people with disabilities.
