October is Disability History and Awareness Month
Disability history education and awareness will promote positive attitudes in schools creating a culture of mutual respect, understanding and equal opportunities for all. (Virginia Department of Education)

Did you know October is Disability and History Awareness (DHAM) month?  It is also ADHD Awareness Month, Learning Disabilities Awareness Month and Dyslexia Awareness Month.  Helping to promote public knowledge, awareness and understanding of disabilities will help ensure our students with disabilities full access to their education.  

Families, staff and citizens are encouraged to participate in the Parent Resource Center’s Disability and History Awareness Month Celebration Day on October 23, 2014, featuring seven different workshops on various disabilities, and a multitude of additional offerings throughout the month at:  www.apsva.us/prc/events.
