RCD CAP Project - 2012-2013 - What RCD means to me
RCD means that a learning, flexibility and accessibility place to me. I will explain why these are to me later. I will explain that the RCD’s goals that are to encourage people with disability to be part in the community and to provide the information, resource, and support to make the people with disability to learn how to live independently.
Why RCD means a learning place to me? There are many interesting classes, like guitar class, mom’s yoga class, public speaking class, English class, martial arts class, exercise class, taichi class, computer class, and etc every week. These classes make the people with disabilities and without disabilities to have opportunity to learn them happily.
Why RCD means a flexibility place to me? There are many interesting programs like the strategy games club, walking club, singing club, table tennis club, social group and etc. These programs make the clients and the staffs (include CAP Coordinators and Youth Interns) to be happy and flexible.
Why RCD means a accessibility place to me? It is due to there are many accessibility facilities at RCD, like there are an elevator to make the wheelchair user to go to upstairs easily, accessible washroom to make the user with disability to go to washroom easily and floor is accessible to everyone. Not only accessibility facilities, but there are also assistive technology to make the users to access the computer easily and happily, like JAWS, Dragon Speaking, Zoom Text. Also, RCD website provides accessibility function to make it to zoom in or zoom out.
RCD is not only a place that provides information, resource, and support to make the people with disability to learn how to live independently, but it also makes clients and staffs to feel that it is a learning, accessibility and flexibility place.
