McGann Conference Center, SJC Long Island
The Individual Needs Network (INN) at St. Joseph’s College (SJC) will host its first Simulation Day event on Monday, April 4 at 6 p.m. in the John A. Danzi Athletic Center at SJC Long Island in Patchogue, New York.
The event aims to bring awareness and allow people to experience the world through the eyes of their peers with different abilities. Guests will be invited to experience simulation activities to see what people with diverse abilities experience on a daily basis. Many of the activities will be run by people who experience a specific condition, allowing for a unique opportunity to ask questions. INN’s goal is to open the barrier that often surrounds people with different abilities, and provide an opportunity for discussion. A panel of students will guide discussions on how to be a better friend, coworker or family member to someone with different abilities.
