Did you know that over 55 million Americans have disabilities? That means that 1 out of every 5 people has a disability! Chances are that either you or someone you know has a disability. Examples of common disabilities are: head injuries, specific learning disabilities, psychological disorders like anxiety or depression, chronic health impairments, as well as speech, hearing, mobility, and visual impairments.
Stop by the ADA Awareness Booth on your campus for more information and a snack break, and later watch a short film entitled, “My Life with a Learning Disability”. A brief discussion will follow the much acclaimed short film authored by a high school student who tells what life was like at school while struggling with a learning disability.
