International Day of Persons with Disabilities recap
- I focused my eyes on Leslie Jerry, a familiar face from the Advisory Committee on Disability Issues.
- Before being interviewed I asked the interviewer what questions she would have for me.
- I remembered that any part of being Autistic that I couldn't hide from the camera could become another avenue for ASD awareness.
The comments from students demonstrated that IDPD increases inclusion. The sessions increased the level of students' understanding of different disabilities. IDPD also helped the students to be comfortable talking about disabilities and talking to people with disabilities.
I hope to take part in IDPD again next year.
