GMSA has been working to get rid of myths about people with developmental disabilities. This workshop is designed for allies, neighbors, support staff and families of self-advocates. As someone who wants to support people with developmental disabilities, it is good to know the myths that have been floating around. It also important to know how you feel about them, and what messages you can give to your co-workers and to the wider community. We recommend that becoming an ally begins with training ourselves to see and hear the attitudes and myths all around us. Once we catch a glimpse of these myths, we can work against them. The first step to being a “myth buster” is to start noticing these false assumptions.
