Join Darcy Elks for a free, live, expert presentation on the power of valued social roles as a path towards the good things in life for people with intellectual disabilities. Kids with disabilities can have their whole identity defined by their diagnosis. They often experience rejection and poor treatment even from those who are supposed to help them. Social roles (like friend, student and team mate) can counteract some of these hurtful experiences and lead to a full, meaningful and inclusive life.
Darcy is an international educator, consultant, human service evaluator, and advocate on behalf of people who have a disability. Darcy is also a parent of 3 adult children one of whom has an intellectual disability.
