It’s a New Year – a new decade even! What a great time for a New View!
New View is an interactive, hands-on workshop from Deliver the Dream, one of the most impactful charities for children in South Florida. With activities and insights that challenge the way we interact with people who are dealing with disabilities and other life challenges, the program can help you see the world a little differently.

For many people, that discomfort is associated with the simple fact that they don’t have any personal experience with disabled people or kids with special needs. “Scope’s report specifically says that a fear of saying the wrong thing or appearing patronizing leads to this discomfort,” Hooker’s GovLoop blog says.
That’s why programs like A New View can be so important.
