Limited Capacity seats available

Children with disabilities abandoned in China often live out their lives in an orphanage. When they reach age 18, they must transition to an elder care facility, if unable to care for themselves. With progressive leadership over the past 5 years, we have worked to raise the level of care and education for children in an orphanage and worked towards building community among the children and their caregivers. The children have become more independent. This presentation will compare the past, current, and future practice for residential living and vocational options. . OBJECTIVES:After this session, participants will be able to: 1. Understand international perspective on children with disabilities, 2. Understand past, current, and future practice for serving children and adults with disabilities in China, and 3. Understand the conundrum of honoring community-based reference and advocating for improved value of persons with disabilities.
