The Public Education program at Ability Connection provides valuable educational services to families, caregivers and disability professionals who are responsible for taking care of (or overseeing the care of) a person with a disability. We also offer training and educational programs to the community in order to create a greater awareness of disabilities, to promote better care for people with disabilities, to teach about recognizing abuse, neglect or exploitation, and to foster more positive attitudes toward those with disabilities.
