Transcript disability awareness week Students got to experience what life is like in a wheelchair for disabled people during Disability Awareness Week. Photo by Max Lacayo recognising a cause Students HelpOut Witktke< Disability Awareness Week During the week of Oct. 2-6 was designated as Disability Awareness Week on the University of Houston campus. All week there were special speakers, activities and lectures on what disability means. One special guest speaker to attend the Disability Awareness Week was Ted Kennedy Jr. Kennedy spoke to students on Wednesday about what it means to be disabled and how those of us aren't can help out the disability community. In the beginning of the week attendance was low. Only a hand full of people attended the opening ceremonies. Later in the week went a little better as more students got involved in the various activities that were set up around the campus. One of these activities involved taking a tour of the campus with a wheelchair- bound student. Another activity involved a demonstration to see what it would be like to be legally blind or deaf. it was an interesting experience for students and faculty who decided to try it T^l out. They were able to get an idea of what it's like for someone without their site or hearing to get around. The real people with the real disabilities have to live like that for the rest of their lives. Another activity to take place was the wheelchair basketball event in which students in wheelchairs played basketball while competing to see which team was the best. Most people found it interesting to watch, because most people had never seen the game of basketball played using wheelchairs. It was a great way to show that anyone with a disability can do the same things just like someone without a disability. The Disability Awareness Week ended with a Special Olympics Unified Sports Exposition. Although attendance could have been better throughout the week, it was still a great event event. The week helped to open the eyes of non-disabled people to see that we're all the same, disabled or not. -Linda Canales One of the events during Disability Awareness Week was the wheelchair basketball competition that drew quite a crowd.
