This session can help participants understand disability and some of the shared experiences they may have. It will help participants reflect on their unique and personal identity story. Identifying as a person with a disability does not have to be negative; it can be a step towards taking back power to make choices and lead the life participants want to lead. Participants will learn:

  • There are many different kinds of disabilities and ways to talk and think about disabilities
  • People with disabilities have the right to decide if they tell someone about their disability or not, which has both benefits and risks
  • It is OK to have positive and negative thoughts about having a disability

All workshops are free; there is no cost to attend. Workshops are intended for individuals who self-identify as having a disability, mental health condition, and/or chronic health condition (rather than family members or service providers). Attendees must live in one of the 8 eastern Iowa counties we serve (Johnson, Linn, Washington, Benton, Cedar, Jones, Henry, or Iowa county).

This is a hybrid workshop. That means participants are welcome to attend in-person OR  online. Advanced registration is required for all participants regardless of attendance format.
