About Society for Manitobans with Disabilities
The Cultural Resource Facilitators of SMD's Ethno-Cultural Program help people and families living with disabilities who come from a variety of ethnic communities connect with much-needed social services and supports. The program also provides training sessions on "Culture and Disability" to service providers.
SMD also runs the Language Program for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Adult Newcomers. This program is for students who have a difficult time understanding, communicating and learning in mainstream ESL/EAL classrooms. Students are taught either or both English and ASL, depending on what makes most sense for them.
