DSC hosts abilities awareness events

Daytona State College will hosted events on Wednesday, Oct. 17, designed to raise awareness of what it’s like to live with a disability and to help people living with disabilities improve the quality of their lives.
The 22nd annual Abilities Awareness Day celebration brought together both non-disabled people and people with disabilities in a day that offered offer fun, information, education and understanding.
The celebration took place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the main courtyard of the Daytona Beach Campus, 1200 W. International Speedway Blvd. Organized by the college’s Office of Student Disabilities Services, the event was free and open to the public.
Through demonstrations and simulations, the event offered non-disabled participants the opportunity to gain better understanding of the barriers experienced by people living with disabilities. Abilities Awareness Day also featured information about resources available at Daytona State College and in the surrounding community for people with disabilities.
Prior to the Abilities Awareness Day activities, the college hosted a breakfast for participants of Volusia County Disability Mentoring Day, an event sponsored and organized by United Cerebral Palsy of East Central Florida. The invitation-only breakfast was from 7:30 to 9 a.m. in the Mori Hosseini Center.  
Disability Mentoring Day underscores the connection between school and work, and allows disabled individuals to link with volunteer local business representatives to evaluate their personal goals, target career skills for improvement, explore possible career paths and develop lasting mentor relationships. Each year Daytona State College participates in the event to enable students with disabilities to spend part of a day visiting local businesses, non-profit agencies and government agencies that match their employment and career interests.
