Walk a mile in my shoes: a program teaching students how to relate to people with a disability

Broadcast:   Monday 21 January 2013 9:20AM (view full episode)  

If you have an obvious disability, you’ve probably got used to people's awkwardness, as they struggle with what to say, how to act, where to look. Often pre-conceived ideas or prejudices about difference have developed without them even realising. A Victorian initiative wants to help confront this awkwardness early on, at school. The Young Ambassadors program targets students in years 9 to 12 and is run by Scope, a non-profit disability provider in Victoria. The program combines study units with very practical opportunities for students with and without disabilities to actively work alongside each other.
