Thank you for your interest in attending the JJ's List Disability Awareness Training on Tuesday, March 15th from 12-1 pm. Please register by sharing your name and email. Zoom information will be emailed to you by a member of our Search team!
More about the event: JJ's List Disability Awareness Players (a social enterprise of Search Inc) will provide a virtual training on person-first language, and provide information on how to properly interact with a person with a disability. Our Disability Awareness Players are experts in disability, because they have disabilities. You will build confidence and experience in how to communicate comfortably and appropriately with customers, co-workers or potential hires who have disabilities. This will be a virtual workshop with videos, skits and time for Q&A.
More about Coming Together 2022: Sharing Experiences in Disability: For nearly 1 out of every 5 Illinois residents, disability of some kind is a part of everyday life. Yet, the experiences of people with disabilities are often missing from our community stories. In collaboration with community members and expert organizations, the 2022 Coming Together season will bring focus to the voices, experiences, and talents of members of the disability community across Niles Township, as well as advocacy and support resources available to all community members. Through multimedia texts and a variety of public events, we will explore four broad categories of disabilities: learning disabilities, physical disabilities, intellectual and developmental disabilities, and mental health disabilities.
