Creighton Seminar Focuses on Dealing with Disabilities; Helping Oneself

Increasing awareness of how people cope with disabilities, university efforts to accommodate people with special needs, and related topics will be the focus of a Wednesday, April 14 symposium sponsored by the Americans with Disabilities (ADA) Committee at Creighton University.

To begin the workshop, the Student Empowerment Network (SEN), a campus-wide organization committed to making positive change and increasing understanding among students of disability, will host a discovery exercise where participants will experience what itís like to have a disability.

The 10:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. event will be held in the V.J. and Angela Skutt Student Centerís Mutual of Omaha Ballroom on campus. It is open to the Creighton community and the public at no cost.

Discussion topics include an update on legal issues, student disabilities management, self-help, insights from a recent ADA survey and communication.
