Events at Seminole State support Disability Awareness Month

 

October is Disability Awareness Month, and the Disability Support Services office at Seminole State College will be hosting several events designed to increase understanding and foster inclusion.

During the "Walk a Mile in Their Shoes" events, students will be able to feel what it’s like to live with a disability. 

At the Assistive Technology and Service Provider Fair being held on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus, several companies will showcase the latest in technology available to help those with a disability. In addition, local service providers will be on campus providing information on the services they offer.

“Having a disability does not mean that we are not able to do something. Having a disability means that we need to do it in a different way or find different resources to get to the goal we want to accomplish,” said Dr. Geraldine Perez, director of Disability Support Services. “A disability is not a limitation; it’s a different ability.”
