"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 provides disability awareness programming to help children see beyond people’s disabilities and to view other children as individuals and friends. We highlight all that people with disabilities can do, and we promote a culture of inclusion and respect.
