Disability Awareness

For students, and adults, identifying one’s disabilities is an important first step to open the door for appropriate services and supports, but equally as important is the understanding that family members, care givers and educators give to an individual with a disability. Each person presents their disability differently, therefore, making it important that people don’t presume their competence level based on the name of their disability. This community on Maryland Learning Links is designed to provide information and resources to raise global awareness of the wide variety of disabilities that exist, to create understanding of how a person’s disability impacts their life and education and to bring light to the idea that a person comes first, not their disability.
