CONNECTING WITH PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES
In our everyday lives, do we view people with disabilities as part of our community? Are they given the same opportunities as everyone else? You can play a part in making a difference to persons with disabilities.
In this session, participants will learn more about the barriers faced by persons with disabilities, how we can play a part in removing these barriers and tips on communicating with persons with disabilities.
You will also get the opportunity to engage in a dialogue with a person with disability and hear first-hand, how he/she overcomes his/her challenges and strive for excellence.
In addition, participants will take part in an activity with our clients with disabilities at our Day Activity Centre, where you can get to know them better and build confidence in our clients with disabilities through showcasing their creativity and individuality.
Through these interactions and activities, we hope that participants can better connect, and empathise with persons with disabilities. With greater understanding, it paves the way to building an inclusive society.
