YOU WILL LEARN
Ever hear the expression, "It's not what you know, it's who you know"?
You can build social capital to keep people safe and create opportunities.
Relationships and social capital powerfully and positively influence our lives no matter how disabled we are.
If you love someone with a disability and you want them to have a good life with friendships, opportunities and safety, then this presentation will give you key insights into how to make that happen.
You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
The average person has about 150 important relationships in their lives. People with disabilities? An average of 24.
People with disabilities have, on average, less than one fifth of the relationships as other people.
These relationships, and the social capital that comes with it, is how people get by, get ahead, and stay safe when times get rough.
Understand social capital so that you can support someone with a disability to maximize its positive impact in their life.
