Hey, Why is that Lady in a Wheelchair?: Disability Awareness for Young Children

July 31 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Young children are naturally curious…they’re supposed to be.  We want them to be and that’s how they learn. So how to we nurture that curiosity in situations where they encounter something or someone new and different from them? Participants will discuss and explore new ways to “normalize” disabilities so the curiosity becomes natural interaction. We will examine ways to build this into the everyday environment and discuss the value, or invalue, of simulating disabilities (for example, pretending to be blind to see how that “might feel”). Finally, participants will take an introspective look at their own views and experiences to examine how this may impact integration of this topic into their classroom.
