All Children Have Special Needs: Promoting Disability Awareness, Empathy and Inclusivity

October 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

How as parents can we practice and model a philosophy which emphasizes that ALL children are special in their own way? We will explore how to talk with our children about disability awareness, empathy, learning from individual differences, and building friendships (at home or at school).Topics include • What is ableism and inherent bias? • Talking to our children about disabilities • Activities to promote empathy • Advocating for unique learners at home and at school.

This FREE workshop is for Linn, Benton and Lincoln County families with children ages 5-12. This is a remote presentation and access to an internet device with a camera and microphone is needed.
