Disability Awareness Programs Resource Guide. Revised.
This resource guide is intended to help in the development of disability awareness programs by school personnel or parent groups in Arizona. A step-by-step format is recommended, including first selecting the type of disability awareness program to be developed. This involves setting up meetings with the special education administrator, determining time lines, and determining who will be involved in the program. Program development suggestions include considering potential committees, planning processes, identifying an appropriate place for presentations, considering funding sources available in the community, and promoting the program. Suggestions for using volunteers include inviting a wide variety of potential volunteers to participate, considering assignments for volunteers, contacting volunteers frequently, and recognizing volunteers for their contributions. Additional suggestions address setting the stage for presentations and following up the program with related activities. Much of the document consists of a program directory which provides basic information (name, contact information, focus, availability, and target audience) for 26 disability awareness programs, mostly based in Arizona. Forms for reporting Disability Awareness Programs and a Disability Awareness Program (DAP) Evaluation are included. (DB)
