On Wednesday, October 24, 2012, the HCC Brandon Campus Office of Services for Students with Disabilities (OSSD) hosted a special Disability Awareness event.
To help Brandon Campus students become more aware of the various types of disabilities, from learning disabilities to physical disabilities, flyers were posted around campus featuring celebrities with disabilities. Students who stopped by the OSSD demo tables in the Student Services building and identified one of the celebrities in the flyers, they received HCC prizes.
The OSSD demo tables showcased items that students are able to use for help with varying disabilities. Learning disability specialist Cordelia Hayden and coordinator for OSSD Nicole Bargeron were on hand to answer questions. One of OSSD's goals is to help provide effective learning strategies for students with disabilities to help them be successful students at HCC.
