(From press release) Large numbers of K-12 and college students have disabilities and, although schools are legally required to accommodate the special needs of students with disabilities, often they do not.
On Sunday morning, October 27, from 9:45 to 10:50, the Davis United Methodist Church will host a presentation on Disabilities, Students, and Schools with Joyceanne Beachem and Austin Tam, members of the Disability Task Force of the California-Nevada Conference of the United Methodist Church. The church is located at 1620 Anderson Road in Davis.
The Disability Task Force has a diverse team of members who are dedicated to the needs of persons with disabilities. Joyceanne Beachem, the chair of the Task Force, will discuss some of the student-related problems they are working on. Austin Tam will talk about advocating in the community. Bring your questions, thoughts, concerns, and friends.
Davis United Methodist Church is a reconciling and an inclusive community of faith. Church services are Sundays at 8:30 and 11:00. For more information, visit www.davisumc.org or contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 530-756-2170.
