Empowering Students Living with Disabilities in the Classroom
POSITIVE EXPOSURE: Self Acceptance = Self-Esteem = Self-Advocacy
Join renowned Author, Ted Talk Speaker, Photographer, and Founder of Positive Exposure, Rick Guidotti, for a dynamic discussion on ways to best meet the social and emotional needs of students with disabilities as well as their families/caregivers. He will share insights on the social and psychological experiences of people of all ages and ethno-cultural heritages living with genetic, physical, behavioral and cognitive conditions. Broaden perspectives on seeing each individual living with a disability first and foremost as a human being with his/her unique challenges, rather than as a specific diagnosis/disease entity. Take away Positive Exposure’s free virtual tools, exhibits, and resources to support self-esteem and self-advocacy in the classroom environment.
