Teaching Children about Disabilities
On Wednesday, April 10, from 9:30 to 10:45 a.m. in the Hulme Room, the Shadyside Presbyterian Church Nursery School will offer a parenting workshop with speaker Shannon Striner.
One in five Americans is a person with a disability, and people with disabilities are more like people without disabilities than they are different. Shannon Striner is an advocate for her 2-year-old daughter, who has Down syndrome. Shannon will walk us through an approach to teaching children about disabilities. Her approach focuses more on what all children have in common and less on what makes them different. Shannon also will recommend some children’s books that will open the door to meaningful dialogue for you and your families.
Childcare will be available for younger siblings and/or preschoolers who may not be in school this day. Please RSVP for childcare to Maureen Elder through the church office.
