Disability is a natural part of life. Disability can also seem scary, intimidating and challenging. When we don't have an understanding of awareness or the tools we need to support a disability, our situation and circumstances can seem uncomfortable for people with disabilities and without.
The HEART Inclusion program at CYT Kansas City provides a firm foundation for disabilities. Through this program we can display acceptance and we acknowledge that disability is part of God's plan for our lives.
He teaches us to be aware and helps us recognize the needs of others and how we can respond to their disability.
Inclusion is the platform that allows us to realize what life with disability is like:
Life is to be celebrated each and every day! Every day is a new day full of opportunities to welcome, meet and help a friend who appreciates, loves and is grateful for the life they have been given.
We meet students who wake up each day excited to feel a sense of belonging. They look forward to classes and rehearsals as they participate alongside their siblings and peers.
Our families are blessed beyond measure with attitudes of gratitude for life!
In Everything Give Thanks
1 Thessalonians 5:18
