Raising Disability Awareness in Alberta's Schools 2005

January 2005 - Projects and Research

This publication grew out of the Alberta Committee of Citizens with Disabilities’ first-hand experience with the myths and stereotypes that negatively affect the lives of people with disabilities. ACCD is an organization of and for people with disabilities, and our members deal with discriminatory attitudes every day. That’s why, in 1990, ACCD established its school outreach program. In this program speakers with disabilities visit elementary and junior high classes in the Edmonton area to talk about the realities of living with a disability. They answer questions, tell stories, and give students the opportunity to interact with someone who has a disability. Our program offers children an authentic view of people with disabilities, a view that counters the myths and stereotypes that may influence perceptions of us.
