The Ablevision crew had the honor of being both a presenter and covering the Disaiblity Awareness presentation at the Glen Urquhart School in Beverly.
The Disability Awareness series was designed to broaden middle school students' perspective and understanding of the struggles, challenges, and successes of those living with special needs. The multi-week program included a series of disabilty-related documentaries and interactive discussions. The program culminated in an afternoon of interactive and hands on learning about the latest adaptive and assistive technologies, led by representatives from Lexington based Cotting School. Additionally, two profoundly deaf women, Karen Keefe and Kelly DeRoche, gave an informative and moving presentation about growing up oral deaf and all the technologies available to help Deaf people function in daily life. Ablevision gave a presentation about disability and the media, and then interviewed the students afterwards on their thoughts about the program. The following Ablevision segment represents the culmination of the program and student perspectives.
