Disability Awareness Month Workshop - Fall 2015 - Disabled Students Programs and Services

October is National Disability Awareness Month—join us at DSPS for a Disability Awareness Month Workshop on learning disabilities! The video "How Difficult Can This Be?" by Richard LaVoie will be shown.

  • Thursday, October 29, 2015
  • 3:30pm
  • Room 7207, Building 7, second floor, Fremont campus

Even if you have seen this engaging video on learning disabilities, it is well worth repeating. Richard LaVoie demonstrates why the classroom can be an intimidating place for those with learning disabilities. He engages his audience with exercises that cause "frustration, anxiety and tension". While you will not be subjected to these same negative feelings, you will be able to understand those in the classroom, at your counter, or at your desk who seem to need that extra bit of encouragement or help.

Questions and discussion will follow the video. Light refreshments will be served.

Flex credit (1.5 hours) is available for this event.
