Daytona State College will host two events on Oct. 17 designed to raise awareness of what it’s like to live with a disability and to help people living with disabilities improve the quality of their lives.
The 22nd annual Abilities Awareness Day celebration will bring together both non-disabled people and people with disabilities in a day that promises to offer fun, information, education and understanding.
The celebration will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the main courtyard of the Daytona Beach Campus, 1200 W. International Speedway Blvd. Organized by the college’s Office of Student Disabilities Services, the event is free and open to the public.
Through demonstrations and simulations, the event will offer non-disabled participants the opportunity to gain better understanding of the barriers experienced by people living with disabilities.
Abilities Awareness Day also will feature information about resources available at Daytona State College and in the surrounding community for people with disabilities.
