Foundation for Developmental Disabilities
Individuals living with a developmental disability like cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism or intellectual disabilities, face many challenges in the course of learning, working, and living in the community. The Foundation for Developmental Disabilities, serving the San Diego and Imperial counties, is a resource for those individuals and their families.
“Explore the ability in disability! access/ABILITY" - is an award-winning exhibit created by Boston Children’s Museum features hands-on activities and personal stories that inspire visitors of all ages. The exhibit allows visiters to learn phrases in American Sign Language, type their name in Braille, try a hand-pedaled bike and take part in a multi-sensory City Walk!
This powerful and highly-interactive exhibit not only teaches respect and understanding, but demonstrates how people living with disabilities can lead active, fulfilling, and meaningful lives.
The exhibit is currently scheduled to run from October 13, 2012 through June 30, 2013. Go to the Museum of Man website for more information.
