The course provides an opportunity for moral development as it aims to increase diversity awareness and appreciation of other people. It has a unique style of instruction with a common thread linking it to the mission of Florida Hospital, to extend the healing ministry of Christ. A part of this ministry involves a personal comfort level and ability to interact with all members of our society, those with and without physical and mental challenges. Students will gain an understanding of the context and culture of persons with disabilities through hands on interaction with a variety of exceptional populations. Students will also gain experience through activities that simulate the human condition related to physical disabilities.
