Education Awareness Program
DFRC's Education Awareness program is a direct outreach to schools at all levels across Delaware to promote understanding of individuals with intellectual disABILITIES, and awareness that persons with differing abilities are a natural and basic part of our society and lives.
"Awareness Through Education" is an educational program that looks at disability (physical, intellectual, and medical) as part of the human experience and encourages accepting others who may look, learn, or behave differently from what is familiar to us. The program celebrates the ability of individuals who are labeled as having disabilities. It hopes to alleviate the essence of fear and awkwardness that most children have when they encounter someone who is different. The program aims to reach school children because the barriers and fears that separate people are more easily broken down in the student population than in later years.
