Allison has worked with Understanding Disabilities as a lesson leader since 2018 and as Program Leader in charge of curriculum and programming since 2019. In early 2020, Allison took on the new position of Program Director, which combined the roles of Program Leader and Executive Director. In 2020, Allison developed an online curriculum for the 2020-21 school year. Why I Support UD: As a parent, I first started volunteering with UD because I wanted my children to grow up in a community that prioritizes inclusion and empathy. I am so grateful that Reading has this incredibly unique and special program in our schools. Contact Allison
Why I support UD: I volunteered to teach a UD lesson to fourth graders, and realized what a unique and special program was in store for my kids as they were starting their elementary school years. I want to keep the UD mission moving forward, since this is such a powerful way to educate young students by teaching inclusion and acceptance of our differences firsthand.
