Pathfinder Services President John Niederman celebrated Disability Awareness Month by reading to the three, four and five year old children at Pathfinder Kids Kampus on Monday, March 28th. Niederman read “Mama Zooms” a book which helps celebrate this years theme of Disability Awareness Month which is to “Cultivate Inclusion”. Niederman read to the children and made reference to the importance of including each child and adult in the community regardless of their ability.
Throughout the month of March various organization’s like Pathfinder Services participated in similar activities nationwide. This year the State of Indiana’s theme of “Cultivate Inclusion” focuses on educating our community members to recognize that people with disabilities should be treated like everyone else helping to break down barriers and negative attitudes that prevent all community members from leading the fullest, most productive lives possible.
