During this time of uncertainty, we want to provide you some useful webinars that help you to be functional in your everyday activities. All of us want to learn as much as we can. Webinars are an excellent way of learning. Here at Disability Awareness, we reached out to Illinois Self-Advocacy Alliance and asked if we could put their webinars on here. They were thrilled. Sign up with your email and you can view these webinars for free.

As we do this, we can get other organizations to do the same. It is easier to go to one place and find useful webinars. If your organization does webinars about disabilities, feel free to contact us so we can add your webinars.
