This Day in Dayton, 5 December

An article in the Journal and Courier on December 5, 1995 featured a day at Dayton Elementary when about 30 students were given temporary disabilities to simulate the difficulties students with real disabilities face in every day life. Bart Hunsicker spent the day in a wheelchair. Brittany Clifton wore glasses that made her visusally impaired. Chelsea Leininger lost her vision and the use of one hand for the day. Nicole Nugent also wore glasses to simulate vision difficulties. Clinton Sheets had his hands bound with tape to simulate palsy.
