Webinar Description:

The AUCD Community Education and Dissemination Council (CEDC) invites you to join us on Monday, September 20, at 2:00 p.m. ET for a webinar on The Art of Storytelling, presented by Dr. Paula Rabidoux from the Nisonger Center.

This webinar will:

  • demystify the notion that it is difficult for an individual to share their story in an impactful way,
  • provide examples of how advocates can develop a storytelling project of their own,
  • and provide techniques on how advocates can support individuals with disabilities on sharing their experiences.
