  Original Published: 3/20/2014Twenty-two members of the Mansfield-Richland Area Educational Foundation's Leadership Unlimited class learned Thursday what it's like to live with a physical or developmental disability. They participated in Richland Newhope's 23rd annual Community Awareness Day. Some wore thick gloves while trying to handle small items, to simulate a neurological disorder. Others wore the gloves, plus had the added burden of impaired vision. Other simulated disabilities included hearing and speech impairments, seizure disorders, and dementia. Community Awareness Day is one of several activities during March as Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month.
