Raising the Comfort Level: Communicating and Interacting with People with Disabilities

Understanding Our Differences presents a special program on Wednesday, March 20, 7-8:30PM. People with disabilities are part of today’s society – in school and at work, in our families and communities. While it is common to feel awkward around people of differing abilities, do you wish that you could be more at ease and know what to do? Or are you comfortable around one kind of disability, but not others?

Join us for an important and informative program on Wednesday evening March 20th – Raising the Comfort Level: Communicating and Interacting with People with Disabilities. Our presenter, Dr. David Ticchi, will share important tips to help you be more comfortable interacting with people with disabilities. In this 75-minute program, Dr. Ticchi will discuss the Respect for Human Differences Guidelines, which were developed at Newton North High School (NNHS). David is a long-time faculty member at NNHS; he also serves as Special Assistant to the President at Legal Sea Foods. He has been a speaker for Understanding Our Differences’ Blindness & Low Vision unit for over 25 years. Wednesday, March 20, 7:00-8:30PM, Newton Ed. Center, Room 304, 100 Walnut Street, Newtonville.
