The students not only learned about DRD’s establishment, development and achievements in supporting people with disabilities in the last 10 years, but also they had a chance to learn the basic knowledge in effectively supporting people with disabilities in community. Especially, they had an opportunity to learn practical skills in supporting people with disabilities from DRD’staff. This is one of the most important skills need to be trained in order to help them be confident when communicating and providing services to people with disabilities in community.
