January 10: Disability etiquette

You don't have to feel awkward when interacting with a person who has a disability. In fact, people who use disability etiquette properly, help everyone - with or without a disability - feel more comfortable. Kristin Larson, Ms. Wheelchair Wisconsin 2011, will discuss ways to communicate and interact more effectively with people with disabilities.
