Clarice commented on Index for Inclusion

I would argue that it is more than children with disabilities that benefit from inclusion. :) When we foster a community that focuses on the individual strengths of a person we begin to realize how vital each person is to the group. I volunteer at a camp for adults with developmental disabilities and they give me more than I could ever give them. I see a huge difference between kids who have been around people with disabilities from a young age, and those who have not. Inclusion is key in reducing stigma, and creating opportunities for people with disabilities makes a better world. You are doing great work and it's an exciting project, but don't forget this is good for everyone in the community! :)

What type of professional is training the CIDWs? Are they being trained on CP or just how to make the assistive device?
