Disability Awareness Month

October

Disability Awareness Month aims to increase awareness and promote independence, integration and inclusion of all people with disabilities in society.

During Disability Awareness Month, we celebrate the ways in which individuals with disabilities strengthen and diversify our society by embracing the talents and skills that individuals with disabilities bring to our college, workplaces and communities. 

Most activities last one hour. See the activities below or you may also download the flyer.

Oct. 12 - Wheel Chair Basketball

Truax Campus, Redsten Gym, 12:30 P.M.

The Whitewater Warhawks just completed a 4-peat as national champions and return to Madison College to talk about their "Cornerstones for Success."

They will dazzle you with their smooth fast breaks and silky shots and will inspire attendees with a simple, yet powerful message. Madison College students, student athletes, faculty and staff will have a chance to play against some of the premier wheelchair athletes in the country.

Oct. 19 - Universal Design: Working with Diverse College Learners

Truax Campus, Room 3243, 1 P.M.

Neurodiversity and its implications for learning have received significant attention in recent years, partly driven by new neuroscientific understanding of learning differences (LD) including Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Of particular interest are interventions that use evidence-based practices in teaching and learning.

Universal Design (UD) is one such approach that broadens access to education for diverse learners. This presentation will address issues, experiences, challenges and alternatives in pedagogical practice for today’s population of high school and college students with disabilities including at-risk students. This session is a "sneak-peek" of the amazing training happening on Nov. 10-11.
