“Let’s Able Not Label” Disability Awareness Training Resource Pack was launched on Friday 27th of October, at St Ailbe’s School, Tipperary Town, by Joanne O’Riordan.
This was a collaborative project, linked to the promotion of Health and Wellbeing identified in the Tipperary Revitalising Areas by Planning, Investment and Development, R.A.P.I.D., Plan
This project was supported by the Area Implementation Team and was delivered by the HSE Disability Services Gold Star, the Transition Year Students and TY Coordinators of St Ailbes, St Anne’s and the Abbey CBS in Tipperary Town, L.I.T. Tipperary and members of the South Tipperary Disability Forum in developing a Disability Awareness Program for incoming first years to secondary schools within Tipperary Town.
The video is part of a “Let’s Able Not Label” resource pack which we hope will be availed of by all secondary schools in the County to build understanding and awareness of living with physical, sensory, Intellectual or hidden disabilities.
The Resource Pack is a positive message and campaign that can only contribute to increased awareness of challenges faced not just in education but by our friends and family with disability.
