OUR MISSION

Understanding Disabilities provides disability awareness programming in the Reading Public Schools, to help children see beyond people's disabilities and focus on the ways that we are all the same inside.

"I look forward to Understanding Disabilities every year.  The lessons and speaker sessions are well prepared and engaging for all students.  The program successfully promotes compassion and acceptance of differences among everyone at our school and extends throughout our community."

Understanding Disabilities depends on donations to meet our budget each year and continue our programming.


Understanding Disabilities is celebrating 30 years of teaching disability awareness.  We thank you for your continued support!
