Presenters will share their knowledge and professional experiences through short presentations, interactive activities, and group discussions. Participants are encouraged to simulate a variety of disabilities using visual impairment goggles, hearing impairment simulators, and other materials and devices to simulate physical disabilities. Discussion regarding learning disabilities, including ADD and ADHD, will be held throughout the workshop.
