Disability Sensitivity Action

Testimonals from Nursing Academy Wijaya Kusuma ( March 31,2010)

At the first we wondered, what was the training?
Then we heard the word "disability", our feeling and thought to those who do begging on the street and who are beggars at traffic light.
We saw and knew them but, is that our business? Actually we want to help, but someone said people with disabilities are sensitive!
The learning process was going on, and the end of the training, AMAZING that we got our awareness and a better understanding.
For the time being, we were wrong, we have false perception which had given stigmatization to them.

We’re so excited there’s a teacher who taught us about individual differences.
Everyone is different, including our friends with disability.
They have a unique characteristic. My friend with visual disability read with his fingers. They call it Braille.
My friend with hearing disability talks with their hands. They call it sign language.
Learning Braille and sign language was so much fun!
