Become a Guest Speaker
UOD presentations promote inclusion, understanding and acceptance of people with disabilities and individual differences at schools and in communities. Presentations allow students to ask questions in a safe space and to understand what it is like to have a disability through learning factual information, how to be inclusive and interacting with a guest speaker with the disability or chronic medical condition.
General Information about being a Guest Speaker
The guest speaker’s visit is a very important part of every UOD unit presentation, and often the favorite and most memorable part for students, teachers, staff and volunteers. Through sharing your story and answering students’ questions, you will enrich all of the information and experience they have gained from the unit introduction and activities with what it’s like for at least one person with the disability or condition and what you share in common with them. Students with the same disability often feel an extra connection and often feel encouraged to meet someone who can share their experiences in school and beyond.
