The Disabilities Task Force (DTF) was formed in 2015 to raise awareness and to educate social workers to work with and among people with disabilities.

 

With an impassioned Steering Committee comprising the following three Co- chairs Marva Sonia Singh and Iris Miller-Smith; Secretary - Valerie Capili; Consultants- Marianne Ardito & Nancy Miler; Professional Development - Laura Kleinman, Arlene Goodman; Public Relations- Consuelo Senior; Social Media- ElizabethKenney- The Task Force have remained true to its mission to educate and empower Social Workers.

 

As a result, the Task Force invited many notable speakers from various organizations to share their knowledge and hands- on experiences. Some of the many organizations that were represented included but are not limited to Alzheimer’s Association, MOPD and United Spinal Association with topics ranging from Disability Etiquette, Emergency Preparedness for PWD, Services for Autism, Dementia and Alzheimer's & Brain Health.
