Ashley Elementary Hosts Motivational Speaker to Promote Acceptance and Understanding

Dec 10, 2015

Lloyd Bachrach, a Paralympian and motivational speaker, visited Ashley Elementary on December 2 as part of a week-long diverse abilities program.

Lloyd spoke to students in grades K-5 and offered a positive message about overcoming adversity with his "Yes You Can!" inspirational presentation.

Educators focus on diverse abilities to teach students about what it’s like to live with challenges like cerebral palsy, autism, Down syndrome and more.

It’s an opportunity to promote tolerance, acceptance and compassion of fellow students with special needs.
