Learning Through Assisting
Learning Through Assisting provides an experiential opportunity for high school students to learn about developmental disabilities, and to affect lifelong attitudes by the completion of service projects with children with developmental disability. The model was created in order to provide knowledge and skills related to child development and personal support, and to increase the inclusion of people with developmental disability in the community.
We think Learning Through Assisting will also encourage the students who participate to consider occupations in the health professions that they will glimpse during the service.
In the end, it will promote understanding of a diverse community, and the value of the contributions of all people to our society. We are available to assist you to get started, and to help you have fun with it!
