Creating awareness for people with disabilities should not be too difficult. In my opinion, people need a better understanding of what its like to be disabled. One thing that people may see is that a lot of disabled people have someone helping them with everything. This includes basic tasks like eating and moving around. Now to some people it may look like they have it easy but thats not always the case.
Since my disability causes tremors in my hands I could not write. Also, I could type the notes out fast enough. For this reason I was assigned an educational assistant to write the notes down for me. The other people in my class had wished they they could have someone do that for them. I, on the other hand did not. I wished that I was able to write the notes myself. Simple activities such as writing are taken for granted.
I am looking for ideas that will get the community involved in some sort of awareness event. If you have any ideas please comment on this post.
