- Treat individuals with disabilities like you would treat anyone else. (Look at us as people first, not just as people in a wheelchair or with a handicap.)
- Offer to help out when you can, but don't just assume that a person isn't capable of doing something for themselves.
- Have patience. We are capable of doing many things, it might just take us a little longer, or we may do it a different way.
- Teach children about individuals with disabilities to make them feel more comfortable when they meet someone with a disability.
- Get involved. There are a number of volunteer opportunities available at CDS and other organizations that support people with disabilities.
- To learn more about disabilities you can visit the Center for Disability Rights website or the federal government's website.
Even though a person has a disability, they are still able to do many things, even if it takes a little extra effort.
