Disability Awareness

In by Paige Haberkorn

What is disability awareness?

Understanding your disability, your rights, and any accommodations or supports you may need to contribute to your success. Ideally, disability awareness…

  • Allows you to know more about your disability and disability rights.
  • Makes you feel positive and proud about your abilities and needs.
  • Is promoted in classrooms, workshops, youth groups, conferences, and conversations by teachers, doctors, and advocates.

Disability awareness will…

  • Increase your ability to speak up for what you need to make decisions about your own future.
  • Help you to support the disability rights movement.
